Traffic Alert: Major Stormwater Improvements Underway on State Highways in the Philadelphia Region

Traffic Alert

SOUTHEASTERN PENNSYLVANIA — Residents of Montgomery, Bucks, and Delaware counties should brace for traffic disruptions as the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) embarks on a $14.9 million stormwater management upgrade project. The improvements will impact more than 90 state highways across the five-county Philadelphia region.

The project begins next week, with closures and lane restrictions scheduled for specific stretches of roadway each day. The affected areas include parts of Church Road, Route 463 (Forty Foot Road), Route 332 (Richboro Road), Jacksonville Road, County Line Road, Route 452 (Market Street), Cross Road, and Evergreen Road.

These roadways will see closures or lane restrictions between 9:00 AM and 3:00 PM on specified days, with certain locations experiencing closures around the clock. Detours will be in place, directing motorists to use alternative routes such as S. Gulph Road, Henderson Road, Meetinghouse Road, Chichester Avenue, Route 113 (Harleysville Pike), Route 73 (Skippack Pike), and others.

Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling near these work areas, as backups and delays are expected. As always, these scheduled activities are weather dependent and subject to change.

Highway Materials, Inc., based in Flourtown, Montgomery County, is the general contractor for this project, which is financed entirely with state funds.

Residents are encouraged to stay informed and plan their commutes accordingly. Drivers can check current road conditions by visiting the MyChesCo Traffic Center.
