Township Awarded Grant For Bethlehem Pike Pedestrian Improvements
Lower Gwynedd has been awarded a $200,000 grant from Montgomery County for planned pedestrian improvements on Bethlehem Pike.
The Montco 2040 Implementation Grant will support the construction of sidewalks on the east and west side of Bethlehem Pike near Locust Lane. The sidewalks will fill in a gap along the pike. The new connections will complement the walkability upgrades made in the Spring House Village area thanks to redevelopment and zoning changes.
The grant is part of an effort to implement the County’s Comprehensive Plan called Montco 2040. Lower Gwynedd is one of 18 municipalities to receive grants. Grants are intended to assist municipalities in making targeted physical improvements that achieve real progress toward the goals of the plan and the plan’s themes of Connected Communities, Sustainable Places, and Vibrant Economy.
