King of Prussia, PA – Interstate 76 motorists will encounter periodic single lane closures and intermittent 15-minute traffic stoppages in both directions at various locations between the Montgomery Drive and the Pennsylvania Turnpike interchanges in Philadelphia and Montgomery counties on Monday, April 29, through Friday May 3, from 10:30 PM to 5:00 AM the following morning for installation of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) components, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today.
I-76 motorists will also continue to encounter periodic shoulder closures in both directions Mondays through Fridays from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM between the Pennsylvania Turnpike and Montgomery Drive in Montgomery and Philadelphia counties.
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 and subject to change.
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.
