Area State Road Repairs Update

Route 663 bridge over West Branch to close May 8


            Daytime and nighttime lane restrictions are in place this 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.

            From Monday, April 24, through Friday, April 28, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., lane restrictions are occurring on Route 29 (Main Street) between W. Sixth Street and W. Second Street in East Greenville, Pennsburg and Red Hill boroughs, for paving.

            All traffic is being 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.

            Route 663 (Layfield Road) between Hill Road and Route 29 (Main Street) in New Hanover and Upper Hanover townships and Pennsburg Borough is also scheduled for resurfacing under this contract.

            Under this improvement project, PennDOT will mill off the existing roadway surface and repave the state highway with new asphalt. The new pavement will seal the roadway 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.

            In bridge news, the closing of the bridge over the West Branch of the Perkiomen Creek in Upper Hanover Township, originally scheduled for May 8, has been moved to mid-June (tentatively).  The project is still expected to be completed in 75 days from the start.

            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.

            511PA is also available through a smartphone application for iPhone and Android devices, by calling 5-1-1, or by following regional Twitter alerts accessible on the 511PA website.
