King of Prussia, PA – The Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission will utilize periodic 15-minute traffic stoppages on eastbound and westbound U.S. 422 and on North Gulph Road in the vicinity of the Turnpike overpasses in Tredyffrin Township, Chester County and Upper Merion Township, Montgomery County on Wednesday, December 22, between 12:00 PM and 3:00 PM, for installation of aerial utilities related to construction currently underway to widen and improve the Turnpike between milepost 324 and milepost 326, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today.
The three stoppages, which will not take place concurrently, will be preceded by slow-moving traffic paces on U.S. 422 between the Oaks and Valley Forge Road interchanges, and on North Gulph Road between First Avenue and Guthrie Road.
