PennDOT to Begin Construction on Five-Points Intersection Improvement Project in Montgomery Township


King of Prussia, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today that construction will begin on Monday, January 29, on a $14.2 million project to improve travel and safety at the Route 309 (Bethlehem Pike), Route 463 (Horsham Road/Cowpath Road), and Business U.S. 202 (Doylestown Road) Intersection, commonly referred to as Five-Points Intersection, in Montgomery Township, Montgomery County.

Under this intersection improvement project, PennDOT's contractor will install additional through lanes at the intersection approaches in both directions on Route 463 (Horsham Road/Cowpath Road) and on southbound Route 309 (Bethlehem Pike). Widening of the roadway will allow for 18 travel lanes to approach the intersection, compared to the existing 15 travel lanes, to improve traffic flow and reduce crashes.

Other improvements include upgrading and retiming signalization; installing sidewalks, ADA curb ramps, and guiderail; upgrading stormwater drainage, signage, and pavement markings; adjusting driveway access; and reducing erosion sediment.

In addition, the intersection improvements on Route 463 (Horsham Road/Cowpath Road) and Route 309 (Bethlehem Pike) will enhance traffic flow for westbound Route 463 (Horsham Road) motorists turning right onto northbound Business U.S. 202 (Doylestown Road).

Beginning, Monday, January 29, through early March, periodic lane closures will take place for tree clearing and utility work at the following locations:

Drivers are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work areas because backups and delays may occur. All scheduled activities are weather dependent.

Road-Con, Inc. of West Chester, Chester County, is the general contractor on this project, which is financed with 100 percent federal funds.

Motorists can check conditions on more than 40,000 roadway miles, including color-coded winter conditions, by visiting 511PA, which is free and available 24 hours a day, provides traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts, traffic speed information and access to more than 1,000 traffic cameras.
