I-76 East Lane Closure at Night 6/29-7/1 for ITS Repair in Lower Merion Township

June 24, 2021 – Eastbound Interstate 76 motorists will encounter a right lane closure approaching the Belmont Avenue Interchange in Lower Merion Township, Montgomery County, on Tuesday, June 29, through Thursday, July 1, from 9:00 PM to 5:00 AM the following morning for Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) repair, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today.

Motorists are advised to allow more time for travel in the work area because backups and slowdowns will occur. The contractor’s schedule is weather-dependent.

This work is part of the recently completed project to install Variable Speed Limit (VSL) and Queue Detection and Warning (QDW) systems along 14 miles of Interstate 76 (Schuylkill Expressway) between King of Prussia and Philadelphia.

Motorists can check conditions on more than 40,000 roadway miles by visiting www.511PA.com. 511PA, which is free and available 24 hours a day, provides traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts, traffic speed information and access to more than 1,000 traffic cameras.
