The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced that fiber optic installations will occur next week on Route 73 (Skippack Pike) under a project to improve the safety of intersections along the Route 73 (Skippack Pike) corridor in Whitpain and Whitemarsh townships, Montgomery County.

The work schedule and location are:

  • Monday, March 13, through Friday, March 24, from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM, a weekday lane closure is scheduled on Route 73 (Skippack Pike) in both directions between Wentz Road and Butler Pike in Whitpain Township.

Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work area backups and delays will occur. All scheduled activities are weather dependent.

Under this $847,074 safety improvement project, PennDOT’s contractor will improve several intersections by replacing and installing new traffic signals, signal supports and related equipment; replacing signage; constructing ADA curb ramps; and restoring pavement markings.
