Traffic Signal Construction Scheduled Next Week on Bethlehem Pike Safety Improvement Project in Springfield Township


​King of Prussia, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today that traffic signal construction will occur next week under a safety improvement project at intersections along a 1.9-mile section of Bethlehem Pike in Springfield and Whitemarsh townships, Montgomery County.  

Motorists are advised of the following travel restriction:
  • Monday, April 1, through Friday, April 5, from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM, a lane closure is scheduled in both directions on Bethlehem Pike at the Montgomery Avenue intersection. 
Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work area because backups and delays may occur. All scheduled activities are weather dependent. 

Under this contract, PennDOT's contractor will convert a section of Bethlehem Pike from an undivided four-lane section to a three-lane section with a two-way left turn lane; modify left-turn signal phasing; coordinate arterial signals; install pedestrian countdown timers at select locations; add retroreflective backplates to improve signal visibility; and mill and overlay pavement along the corridor.

The Bethlehem Pike intersections included in this safety improvement project are Flourtown Shopping Center Driveway, Mill Road, College Avenue, Bysher Avenue, Wissahickon Avenue, Haws Lane, Montgomery Avenue, Sunnybrook Road, and Hillcrest Avenue. 

Highway Materials, Inc. of Flourtown, Pennsylvania, is the general contractor on the project, which is financed with 100 percent federal funds. Physical construction on the project is expected to finish this fall. 

Motorists can check conditions on more than 40,000 roadway miles 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.
