Roadwork began earlier this week on the 1.6-mile stretch of Route 422, from about a mile west of the Armand Hammer Boulevard and Route 724 exits.
The Sanatoga Post reports that the $73.3 million project, funded 80 percent by federal funds and 20 percent by state funds, includes rebuilding and improving worn pavement and two structurally deficient bridges.
The right lanes will be closed overnight from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m., between Sanatoga and 724 for shoulder work, through Saturday, Sept. 29. PennDOT assures that two lanes in each direction will remain open during peak travel times.
Afterwards, work will continue through October 2018.
The project is the first of six over the next eight to 10 years, to rebuild and improve a seven-mile stretch of Route 422, between the Berks County line and Sanatoga.
