Route 63 (Sumneytown Pike) Lane Restrictions, Full Closure Scheduled for Bridge Replacement in Montgomery County

​King of Prussia, PA – Weekday lane restrictions and an overnight closure and detour are scheduled on Route 63 (Sumneytown Pike) beginning next week for construction under a project to replace three poor condition bridges carrying Route 63 (Sumneytown Pike) over Unami Creek, Ridge Valley Creek and the East Branch of the Perkiomen Creek in Upper Salford and Marlborough townships, Montgomery County, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today.

The work schedule is:

  • Monday, June 29, through Thursday, July 2, from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM, lane restrictions with flagging are scheduled on Route 63 (Sumneytown Pike) between Thompson Road and Heather Drive, for paving operations; and
  • Tuesday, July 7, from 6:00 PM to 6:00 AM the following morning, Route 63 (Sumneytown Pike) is scheduled to close between Old Sumneytown Pike and Thompson Road, for pipe installation. During the closure, motorists will be directed to use Old Sumneytown Pike.

Drivers are advised to allow extra time when traveling near the work areas because backups and delays will occur. The schedule is weather dependent.

Work on this project will be in accordance with Centers for Disease Control and state Department of Health guidance as well as a project-specific COVID-19 safety plan, which will include protocols for social distancing, use of face coverings, personal and job-site cleaning protocols, management of entries to the jobsite, and relevant training.

In addition to the lane restrictions and overnight closure, a single lane pattern remains in effect on Route 63 (Sumneytown Pike) between Long Mill Road and Shady Lane through late 2020, for construction of the bridge, over the East Branch of the Perkiomen Creek. The bridges over the Unami Creek and Ridge Valley Creek were replaced and reopened in December 2019.

H & K Group, Inc., of Skippack, PA is the general contractor on the $9,565,527 project which is financed with 80 percent federal and 20 percent state funds.

The entire project is expected to be completed in spring of 2021.
