HARRISBURG – Rep. Justin Simmons (R-Lehigh/Montgomery/Northampton) announced today that the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) will hold an Open House Public Plans Display for the planned Route 29 (Main Street) Bridge Replacement Project in Pennsburg Borough, Montgomery County, on Thursday, Oct. 3, 2019 from 7-8:30 p.m.
The event, which is open to the public, will take place at the Pennsburg Municipal Building, located at 76 W. 6th St. in Pennsburg. Representatives from PennDOT will be in attendance to explain their plans and will be available afterward to answer questions from community members.
“I hope that residents of Pennsburg Borough and the surrounding areas will come out to learn more about this critical infrastructure improvement plan,” Simmons said. “Roadway upgrades are one area where it is important to keep open the lines of communication, and this event is an excellent opportunity to have your questions answered.”
PennDOT’s objectives of this project are to provide a safe structure and transportation facility, adjust the roadway profile to improve sight distance for drivers traveling on Route 29, expand pedestrian facilities to connect the surrounding area, and provide sufficient clearance under the bridge to maintain access for a future county shared-use path that will run along the abandoned Perkiomen Railroad line.
