Lane closure on Ridge Pike along Whitemarsh and Springfield townships section

Montgomery County has announced that pre-construction activities will continue on Ridge Pike between Crescent Avenue and Northwestern Avenue during the week of Monday, July 25, 2022.

Single lane closures with flagging will be in effect from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. from July 25-29 in various locations throughout the corridor for tree clearing at utility relocation.

This work is being done in preparation for construction on Section D of the Ridge Pike Improvement Project from Crescent Avenue to Philadelphia. Located in Whitemarsh and Springfield Townships, this project includes a full-depth roadway reconstruction that improves safety and reduces congestion. The project will add traffic signals at Crescent and Barren Hill Roads, add an eastbound through lane between Harts Lane and Northwestern Avenue, and add much-needed stormwater management facilities. 

The project will also improve pedestrian safety and transit accessibility by providing a continuous sidewalk along the southwestern side of the road and consolidating SEPTA bus stops and making them ADA compliant.
