Summary of Traffic Changes starting May 8th

May 9, 2017

Advice: enter Reading using the Buttonwood Bridge or Bingaman Street Bridge

  • The exit ramp for traffic driving on SR 422 Westbound to Penn Street Eastbound (towards the City of Reading) will be closed. The ramp is anticipated to reopen to traffic in October 2019. (Detailed detour information, including a map, can be found on the website)
  • The eastbound traffic (entering the City of Reading) across the Penn Street Bridge will be reduced to one 11-foot-wide lane. The eastbound traffic will not return to two lanes of traffic until project completion, which is anticipated in December of 2019.
  • The westbound traffic across the Penn Street Bridge (out of Reading) will remain in two 11-foot-wide lanes until the last stages of the project.
The dates mentioned above are anticipated at this point in time. Inclement weather or other unforeseen events could cause a slight delay to this schedule.
