I-76 East Lane Closure Scheduled Overnights Through Late April in Upper Merion

Eastbound Interstate 76 (Schuylkill Expressway) motorists will encounter a right lane closure between the Pennsylvania Turnpike and Route 320 (Gulph Mills) interchanges beginning Sunday night, March 15, for sinkhole remediation under a project to remediate four sinkhole locations on I-76 in the U.S. 202 Interchange area in Upper Merion Township, Montgomery County, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today. The lane closure will be in place Sundays through Thursdays from 9:00 PM to 5:00 AM the following morning through Friday, April 24.

Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work area because backups and delays will occur. The schedule is weather dependent.
