Road Projects

Spring House Intersection Improvement Project

This project is being funded through a Multi-Modal Transportation Fund Grant.  Lower Gwynedd Township is proposing roadway improvements to be located at the intersection of Sumneytown Pike/Norristown Road (SR 2052). The roadway construction generally consists of widening on Norristown Road (SR 2052) and Sumneytown Pike to provide additional through lanes in the eastbound and westbound directions, traffic signal improvements, concrete sidewalk and bituminous trail modifications on the north side of SR 2052 and both sides of Sumneytown Pike, and ADA ramp upgrades for all affected ramps within the limits of work.  The majority of the proposed work is within PennDOT, Montgomery County, or Lower Gwynedd Township right-of-way. Phase 1, which included the widening of the culvert on Sumneytown Pike, is  complete. Phase 2 is currently in design. The project construction is anticipated to occur in mid to late 2022. However, please be aware that Lower Gwynedd Township, and the project team, in accordance with PennDOT and Montgomery County requirements, will make every effort to minimize inconvenience to the community and traveling public while the proposed improvements are constructed.  Advance notice of the construction schedule, once established, will be communicated to the property owners within the limits of work, as well as notice provided on the Lower Gwynedd Township website.
