Improvement Project to Close Route 29 (Main Street) in Pennsburg, Red Hill Boroughs
Written by PennDOT Press Release

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today that construction continues on a project to improve mobility and safety on Route 29 (Main Street) between 10th Street and 11th Street in Pennsburg and Red Hill boroughs, Montgomery County.

Motorists are advised of the following travel restriction:

  • Monday, March 13, through late October, a 24/7 road closure is scheduled on Route 29 (Main Street) between 10th Street and 11th Street. During the closure, Route 29 motorists will be directed to use Route 663 (Pottstown Avenue/Layfield Road) and Route 73 (Big Road). In addition, 10th Street motorists will be directed to use Runaway Drive and Buck Road/8th Street.

Local access will be maintained up to the work zone. Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling near the work area because backups and delays will occur. All scheduled activities are weather dependent.

To address speeding and traffic congestion through the work area, the project will also include variable message signs, speed humps, temporary traffic signals, and other safety measures.

Under this contract, PennDOT's contractor will remove the superstructure and its upper portion of the existing Route 29 (Main Street) bridge over the former abandoned Perkiomen Railroad to allow for corridor improvements. This will eliminate the thru girder beams at the edge of the travel lanes to help elevate crashes and improve safety along the corridor.

Other safety features include:

  • Constructing sidewalks along both sides of the roadway to improve pedestrian access;
  • Re-aligning the vertical profile to improve sight distance and reduce rear-end type crashes; and
  • Installing upgraded signage, guiderails, and pavement markings.

H & K Group, Inc. in Skippack, PA is the general contractor on this $3.2 million project, which is financed with 100 percent state funds.
