King of Prussia, PA – Interstate 76 motorists will encounter periodic 15-minute traffic stoppages in both directions at various locations between the Montgomery Drive and Interstate 476 interchanges in Philadelphia and Montgomery counties on Monday, March 24, through Thursday, March 28, from 12:00 AM to 5:00 AM for installation of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) components, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today.
In addition to the overnight stoppages, intermittent shoulder closures will remain in place Mondays through Saturdays from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM on eastbound and westbound I-76 between the Pennsylvania Turnpike and Montgomery Drive interchanges.
Motorists are advised to allow more time for travel in the work areas because backups and slowdowns will occur. The contractor’s schedule is weather dependent.
This work is part of the first phase of a long-range, comprehensive, multimodal transportation management plan designed to enhance travel and safety along the Interstate 76 (Schuylkill Expressway) corridor between King of Prussia and Philadelphia.
