There will be four days of roadwork on 422 next week.
A PennDOT news release reports that there will be lane restrictions from 9am-3pm along the length of Route 422 next week so that the bridges can be cleaned. Nearly all of our area's section of Route 422 will be affected, from the Route 363/Trooper interchange all the way up to the Armand Hammer Boulevard interchange. PennDOT suggest that drivers allow extra time and use caution when going through the area during the lane closures.
The contested area is found at J.P. Mascaro & Sons corporate headquarters in Audubon, which overlooks Route 422 and Valley Forge National Park.
Drivers along 422 won't soon be seeing new billboards. On Sept. 4, Gary Silow, Judge of the Court of Common Pleas of Montgomery County, ruled in favor of an appeal by Lower Providence Township.

Mascaro & Sons would allow the property manager, MB Investments, to construct two “V-shaped” billboards, each with a static and digital side. J.P. Mascaro & Sons is a family-owned and operated waste management company. Its corporate headquarters is located at 2650 Audubon Road. The …

The issue of tolling 422 is dead since legislators who make the call on this have already come out against it. So Tuesday night, I enjoyed a bit of Kabuki theater.
Tuesday night Mike Vereb (R-150) used the Pope John Paul II High School auditorium to present on the topic of 422 tolling. I am glad that there were no striking teachers outside. I would not have attended the meeting if I had to cross a picket line. With Rep. Vereb were GOP representatives most from districts that border this roadway: Warren Kampf (R-157), Tom Quigley(R-146) and Marcy Toepel (R-147). Also attending were Democratic County Commissioner Joe Hoeffel, the Executive Director of the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission Barry Seymour (I think he has to be politically neutered before speaking…) and an editor/GOP political operative of a local newspaper. Who was NOT there was just as interesting. GOP State Sen. John Rafferty…
