King of Prussia, PA – PECO Energy is planning to close Route 23 (Front Street/River Road) between Fayette Street and Route 320 (Swedeland Road) in West Conshohocken Borough and Upper Merion Township, Montgomery County on Monday, June 8, for gas main installation, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today. The closure will be in place weeknights from 8:00 PM to 6:00 AM the following morning through Tuesday, June 23.

During the overnight closure, motorists will be directed to use Matsonford Road and Route 320 (Gulph Road/Holstein Road/Swedeland Road).

Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling near the work area because backups and delays may occur.
