U.S. 422 East Ramp to Route 23 to Close for Several Months for Interchange Improvement in Valley Forge Area


The ramp from eastbound U.S. 422 to Route 23 (Valley Forge Road) is scheduled to close in Upper Merion Township, Montgomery County, beginning Monday, February 12, for the start of construction on a new fly-over ramp at that interchange, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today. The ramp closure will be in place through late summer.

During construction, motorists will be directed to continue eastbound on U.S.
422, exit at First Avenue and make a left on Gulph Road to reach Route 23 (Valley Forge Road). Drivers should allow additional time for travel near the construction zone because backups and delays will occur.

The scope of work on this project includes improving U.S. 422 between the Route 23 (Valley Forge Road) and Route 363 (Trooper Road) interchanges; upgrading Route 23 (Valley Forge Road) at its interchange with U.S. 422; and improving ramps at the Route 363 (Trooper Road), Route 23 (Valley Forge Road) and First Avenue interchanges.

Construction on this improvement project began in February 2016 and is scheduled to finish in May 2020. For additional information on U.S. 422 improvement projects, visit www.422improvements.com.
