PennDOT today announced a project will begin September 12 to improve the intersection of US 222/Kutztown Road and PA 662/Moselem Springs Road in Richmond Township, Berks County. 
 
Motorists should remain alert for changing traffic patterns when traveling through the area of this intersection until all work is complete (work is expected to be complete in July 2018). 
 
Starting September 6 the section of PA 662 between US 222 and Farmers Drive will be closed and detoured Sundays through Thursdays between the hours of 8:30 p.m. and 6:30 a.m. while drainage work is performed. These closures are expected to last three weeks with PA 662 traffic being detoured on Farmers Drive and US 222.
 
For the duration of the project motorists may experience changing traffic patterns on US 222 and PA 662. In addition, lane restrictions may occur on US 222 and PA 662 between the hours of 8:30 p.m. and 6:30 a.m., and on PA 662 between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m.
 
Later this fall, and lasting approximately eighteen months, all left turns from US 222 to PA 662 will be restricted with left turn traffic being detoured on Farmers Drive. A temporary traffic signal will be in place at US 222 and Farmers Drive for the duration of these restrictions.
