Route 422 Public Forum
There was a public forum Tuesday night about the proposal to toll Route 422 in Montgomery County. An official with the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission told a big crowd at Pope John Paul II High School that a $2.65 toll for the stretch between Valley Forge National Park and the other side of Pottstown could generate enough money to eliminate traffic bottlenecks on the highway and also provide the startup capital for resuming passenger train service between Norristown and Reading. The DVRPC estimates it will cost about $750,000,000 to fix Route 422.
