King of Prussia, PA – St. Joseph’s University is planning lane closures on northbound and southbound U.S. 1 (City Avenue) at the intersection with Cardinal Avenue in Philadelphia and Lower Merion Township, Montgomery County, beginning Thursday, September 29, for utility construction, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today. The closure will be in place Mondays through Fridays from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM through Thursday, November 10. 

Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work area because backups and delays will occur. All scheduled activities are weather dependent.

St. Joseph’s University will conduct GPR scanning for utilities and complete this project under a PennDOT Highway Occupancy Permit. 

Motorists can check conditions on major roadways by visiting or downloading the 511PA mobile application. 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.

Handling glass in construction can be tricky. It is often an awkward shape to carry and can be slippery in the hands, causing you to have a limited grip. That being said, giving importance of glass safety when handling glass ensures you and others around you are safe at all times and with as little risk as possible.
