King of Prussia, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today that construction has been completed on a $3.2 million project to improve mobility and safety on Route 29 (Main Street) between 10th Street and 11th Street in Pennsburg and Red Hill boroughs, Montgomery County.
PennDOT's contractor removed the superstructure and its upper portion of the existing Route 29 (Main Street) bridge over the former abandoned Perkiomen Railroad to allow for corridor improvements. This eliminated the thru girder beams at the edge of the travel lanes to help alleviate crashes and improve safety along the corridor.
Other safety features included:
- Constructing sidewalks along both sides of the roadway to improve pedestrian access;
- Re-aligning the vertical profile to improve sight distance and reduce rear-end type crashes; and
- Installing upgraded signage, guiderails, and pavement markings.
H & K Group, Inc. in Skippack, PA was the general contractor on this improvement project, which was financed with 100 percent state funds.
Motorists can check conditions on more than 40,000 roadway miles, including color-coded winter conditions, by visiting www.511PA.com. 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.
