Markley St. (U.S. 202 South), Main St. Travel Restrictions Planned Next 2 Weeks for Construction
Travel restrictions will be in place over the next two weeks beginning Tuesday, September 7, on southbound Markley Street (U.S. 202 South) and eastbound Main Street for bridge and roadway construction in Norristown, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today.
Southbound Markley Street (U.S. 202 South) will be reduced to one lane between Marshall Street and Airy Street on Tuesday, September 7, through Friday, September 10, and on Monday, September 13, through Friday, September 17, from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM for bridge construction.
Eastbound Main Street will be reduced to a single lane between Markley Street (U.S. 202 South) and Barbadoes Street on Tuesday, September 7, through Friday, September 10, and on Monday, September 13, through Friday, September 17, for utility relocations. In addition, parking will be temporarily restricted in the work area on both sides of Main Street during the utility operation.
Northbound U.S. 202 motorists headed to Norristown are advised to follow the project detour that uses DeKalb Pike starting in Bridgeport to avoid congestion at the Markley Street/Main Street intersection on the north side of the Dannehower Bridge.
Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through or near the work areas because backups and delays may occur. All scheduled activities are weather dependent.
Reconstruction activities are now underway on the southbound side of Markley Street (U.S. 202 South), including construction of the southbound bridge over Stony Creek. Improvements at Markley Street (U.S. 202 South) intersections with Main Street and Marshall Street also are under construction.
Allan Myers, LP, of Worcester, Montgomery County is the general contractor on the project, which is financed with 80 percent federal and 20 percent state funds. Construction on the entire project is expected to be completed in late 2022.
