Manatawny Street to Close Monday for Utility Work Under Route 663 (King Street) Bridge Replacement Project in Pottstown Borough

​King of Prussia, PA – Manatawny Street is scheduled to close between Route 663 (King Street) and High Street in Pottstown Borough, Montgomery County, on Monday, May 17, from 6:00 AM to 6:00 PM, for utility work under the project to replace the Route 663 (King Street) bridge over Manatawny Creek, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today.

During the one-day closure, Manatawny Street motorists will be detoured over Hanover Street and High Street.

Route 663 (King Street) also remains closed between Manatawny Street and Route 100 (Pottstown Pike) through spring 2022. On Monday, May 17, Route 663 (King Street) motorists will be directed to use Route 663 (East King Street), Hanover Street, Route 724 (Schuylkill Road) and Route 100 (Pottstown Pike). Once Manatawny Street has reopened, Route 663 (King Street) motorists will resume the regular approved detour route utilizing Manatawny Street, High Street, Hanover Street, Route 724 (Schuylkill Road) and Route 100 (Pottstown Pike).

Pedestrians will continue to be detoured over Manatawny Street, High Street and through the Borough of Pottstown.

Local access will be maintained up to the construction zone. Drivers are advised to allow extra time when traveling near the work areas because backups and delays will occur.

Work on this project will be in accordance with Centers for Disease Control and state Department of Health guidance as well as a project-specific COVID-19 safety plan, which will include protocols for social distancing, use of face coverings, personal and job-site cleaning protocols, management of entries to the jobsite, special signing, and relevant training.

The scope of this project includes several safety improvements including enhancements to roadside protection at the approaches to the new bridge barriers; wider sidewalks on both sides of the bridge; and new ADA curb ramps at the intersection of Route 663 (King Street) and Manatawny Street. Decorative bridge lighting is also being added to improve visibility.

Rylind Construction Company of Lewisberry, PA is the general contractor on the $3,999,000 project which is financed with 100 percent state funds. The entire project is expected to finish in spring 2022.

Motorists can check conditions on more than 40,000 roadway miles by visiting 511PA, which is free and available 24 hours a day, provides traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts, traffic speed information and access to more than 1,000 traffic cameras.
