West Germantown Pike (King Of Prussia)

I have a report from a user claiming this section of Germantown Pike is close due to major construction
I looked on various website and can not find an official reference to back this up. Anyone know for sure.

Re: handling a road closure

When a road segment is closed, may I suggest placing a scheduled restriction on it for all hours and all vehicle types with an explanatory comment or URL rather than restricting turns (which can be undone by an inadvertent click)? Where appropriate, you can add a date range to the schedule.

A disconnected ramp shows up on another report, so the upcoming practice might be to lay down a restriction during construction. Regardless, for a short-term scheduled closure, a restriction has the advantages of not destroying the configuration of turns and automatically re-opening the road no later than the set date.

The new standard is better for the reasons given. CONST ZN is obsolete for sure because it produces TTS gibberish. There would have to be a really compelling reason not to change. No one came up with one.
