Lane Restrictions Scheduled Next Week in our Area

            Daytime and nighttime lane restrictions are scheduled next week on several state highways as part of a $5.4 million project to repair and resurface 24 miles of state highway in Montgomery County, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today.

            Monday, April 24, through Friday, April 28, from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM, lane restrictions are scheduled on Route 29 (Main Street) between West 6th Street and West 2nd Street in East Greenville, Pennsburg and Red Hill boroughs, for paving.

            All traffic will be controlled by flagging. Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through these work zones because slowdowns will occur. The contractor's schedule is dependent on the weather.

            The additional state highways in the Town and Country readership area scheduled for resurfacing under this contract include: Route 663 (Layfield Road) between Hill Road and Route 29 (Main Street) in New Hanover and Upper Hanover townships and Pennsburg Borough;

            Under this improvement project, PennDOT will mill off the existing roadway surface and repave the state highways with new asphalt. The new pavement will seal the roadways and provide motorists with a smoother riding surface.

            All work on the project is expected to be completed in July 2017.

            H & K Group, Inc., of Schwenksville, Montgomery County, is the general contractor on the $5,439,980 project, which is financed with 100 percent state funds from Act 89, Pennsylvania's Transportation Plan.

            For more information on projects occurring or being bid this year, those made possible by or accelerated by Act 89, or those on the department's Four and Twelve Year Plans, visit

            Motorists can check conditions on more than 40,000 roadway miles by visiting 511PA, which is free and available 24 hours a day, provides traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts, traffic speed information and access to more than 825 traffic cameras.
