Route 222 SB Ramps Closed Tonight at Route 322 Interchange in Ephrata and West Earl Townships in Lancaster County

Harrisburg, PA – Motorists in Lancaster County are advised the southbound Route 222 off- and on-ramps at the Route 322 interchange will be closed tonight so a contractor can mill notches and pave the acceleration and deceleration lanes to tie the ramps into Route 222 mainline. This work is part of a 4.34-mile resurfacing project on Route 222 in Ephrata and West Earl townships.

The ramps will be closed starting at 8:00 PM tonight, Thursday, October 14, and will reopen by 6:00 AM tomorrow Friday, October 15.

Motorists traveling south on Route 222 who wish to exit at Route 322 should continue south to the Route 772/Brownstown/Rothsville Exit, then take northbound Route 222 to Route 322.

Motorists wishing to access southbound Route 222 from Route 322 should travel north on Route 222 to the Route 272/PA Turnpike/Denver Exit to access southbound Route 222.
