The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) has announced that the construction of the roadway and utilities shall continue next week, as part of a project to improve safety and travel along the Route 73 corridor in Montgomery County’s Whitpain and Whitemarsh townships.

Starting Monday, May 15, going through till Friday, May 26, from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM, the authorities have planned to close the lanes on Route 73 in both directions between Wentz Road and Butler Pike on weekdays. As the work is weather-dependent, delays and bottlenecks may occur and motorists should allow additional time when passing through the area.

PennDOT’s contractor has commenced the improvement project, involving traffic signals, supports, equipment, and signage replacement. New ADA curb ramps will also be constructed, and pavement markings restored on the Skippack Pike intersections with several roads including Wentz Road, Cathcart Road and Union Meeting Road. The $847,000 project is funded with federal funds and is expected to be completed by fall 2024. Armour & Sons Electric, Inc, from Langhorne, Bucks County, is the general contractor for this important project.
