Ridge Pike Improvement Project

BACKGROUND: 
Ridge Pike is owned by Montgomery County from Philadelphia to Norristown. It carries between 20,000 and 30,000 cars each day. The original roadway alignment dates to colonial days as do some of the features along the road. The modern roadway dates from the 1930s and was widened in the 1970s. 

The project area is nearly 5 miles long and includes some very complex engineering in the areas near the PA Turnpike, the Norfolk Southern rail lines and the Sunoco pipeline. So the project has been divided into seven manageable segments for engineering and construction. Five segments are in the area between Norristown and Chemical Road; one segment is between Butler Pike and Crescent Avenue ("Section C") and one segment is between Crescent Avenue and Northwestern Avenue in Philadelphia ("Section D").

SECTION C STATUS: 
Preliminary Design started in late-2017 and completed in 2022. Currently in the Final Design process, which is expected to continue through 2025. Constructed is anticipated to start in 2025. Get the latest on Section C from the County here: butlertocrescent.com/

SECTION D STATUS: 
Utility relocations on Ridge Pike in Whitemarsh and Springfield Townships began in Summer 2022. Roadway construction started in early-2023, with completion anticipated in Summer 2025. Get the latest on Section D from the County here: www.montgomerycountypa.gov/3605/Section-D-Whitemarsh-Springfield-Townshi

West Valley Green Road Bridge (County Bridge #59)

This bridge, located between Creek Lane and Bethlehem Pike, within Wissahickon Valley Park in Whitemarsh Township, is a steel truss bridge originally built in 1884. In recent years, however, it has been closed and reopened to vehicular traffic due to required structural maintenance and repairs by the County in order to keep the bridge open to the public. In addition, there is a weight restriction in place, and no taller vehicles such as school buses, fire trucks, ambulances, etc., are allowed through it.In July 2023, Montgomery County and PennDOT held a virtual public meeting to get public input on several preliminary design alternatives, and fulfill specific requirements for the project. The recorded meeting, as well as the presentation, meeting minutes and more can be viewed at: www.montgomerycountypa.gov/4418/West-Valley-Green-Road-Bridge-County-Bri
