Sheaff Lane (between Skippack Pike/Rt. 73 and Stenton Ave) will be closed starting Tuesday, June 21, 2016. This is a FULL CLOSURE (24/7) but local residents along Sheaff will still have access via Skippack Pike. The road closure is expected to last approximately 8 week. For more information on this and other road projects in the Township, visit the Township Roads Project page.
Ridge Pike is owned by Montgomery County between Phila. and Norristown. As residents and business owners know, the current roadway is in poor condition with poor stormwater drainage, rough roadway surfaces, awkward left turn movements, general congestion and few pedestrian connections. In the coming years, Ridge Pike will be reconstructed from Crescent Ave to the Phila. city line (Northwestern Ave.). Drainage will be improved, new traffic signals and a second eastbound travel lane will be added, and new sidewalk connections will be provided. The overall cost of the improvements will be funded by Montgomery County. A public Open House was held on June 20, 2016 at the Whitemarsh Township Building. For those that missed the open house, more information can be found on the County's website: www.ridgepikeproject.org
