Ciresi announces resurfacing for 5 state roads in Western Montgomery County
HARRISBURG, Aug. 9 – Rep. Joe Ciresi, D-Montgomery, announced that the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) has awarded a $12,900,000 contract to Allan Meyers, LP, of Worcester, Montgomery County, to repair and resurface 17 state roadways in Montgomery County, including five important roads in and near the 146th District.
“Good roads are the backbone of a strong community — they connect us to our workplaces, to our schools, to our houses of worship and to each other,” Ciresi said. “Ensuring a well-maintained infrastructure is an important responsibility of government. This state-funded project will make it easier for my constituents to have safer and more pleasant commutes on important roadways in my district.”
The contract will repair and resurface the following roads in the 146th District:
- Ridge Pike/Main Street from Route 29 (Second Avenue) to 578 feet west of Limerick Center Road in Trappe and Collegeville boroughs, and Limerick and Upper Providence townships.
- High Street/West Ridge Pike between Old Township Line Road and Keim Street in Pottstown Borough, and Limerick and Lower Pottsgrove townships.
- Route 73 (Skippack Pike) between Route 29 (Gravel Pike) and Green Hill Road in Worcester and Perkiomen townships and Skippack Borough.
- Route 29 (Collegeville Avenue/Second Avenue) between the U.S. 422 Interchange and Main Street in Collegeville Borough and Upper Providence Township.
- Route 113 (Black Rock Road) between the Chester County line and Ramsgate Drive in Upper Providence Township.
Construction will begin this summer and all work is expected to finish in summer 2022. This project is financed with 100 percent state funds.
Under this improvement project, PennDOT will resurface 48 miles of state highways in Montgomery County using bituminous material. The new pavements will seal the roadways and provide motorists with a smoother riding surface.
