Road Construction Project Updates

Spring House Intersection Improvement Project

Project Summary:

The Spring House Intersection Improvement Project is being funded through a Multi-Modal Transportation Fund Grant.  Lower Gwynedd Township is proposing roadway improvements to be located at the intersection of Sumneytown Pike/Norristown Road (SR 2052). The roadway construction generally consists of widening on Norristown Road (SR 2052) and Sumneytown Pike to provide additional through lanes in the eastbound and westbound directions, traffic signal improvements, concrete sidewalk and trail modifications on the north side of SR 2052 and both sides of Sumneytown Pike, and ADA ramp upgrades for all affected ramps within the limits of work.  The majority of the proposed work is within PennDOT, Montgomery County, or Lower Gwynedd Township right-of-way. Phase 1, which included the widening of the culvert on Sumneytown Pike, is complete. Phase 2 is currently underway.

Please understand that Lower Gwynedd Township, Contractor, and the project team, in accordance with PennDOT and Montgomery County requirements, will make every effort to minimize inconvenience to the community and traveling public while the proposed improvements are constructed.  However, we do ask for your patience and understanding when traveling in the project area.  Project status updates will be provided on the Lower Gwynedd Township website throughout construction.
