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 and one segment is between Crescent Avenue and Northwestern Avenue in Philadelphia.
(Updated Oct. 6, 2017)
The preliminary design for the Ridge Pike segment between Butler Pike and Crescent Avenue has begun. The Engineering firm is Rummel, Klepper and Kahn (RK&K) in King of Prussia. Over the next few weeks, the engineers and surveyors will be collecting information about the current conditions of the roadway as well as traffic volumes. Here are some things to look for:
Notice of Intent to Enter (NOITE) Letters: If your property abuts Ridge Pike, you may receive a NOITE letter indicating that the engineers or surveyors may need to enter your property in order to acquire important information about Ridge Pike.
PLEASE NOTE: The NOITE does not indicate that your property will be impacted by the future construction. We will not have any information about property impacts for several years yet.
Traffic Counts: Traffic counting will also begin soon along Ridge Pike and the cross streets. You may see the pneumatic tubes across the street or you may see folks doing manual counts are intersections. These counts are critical to determining how best to improve Ridge Pike.
Public Info Sign-Ups: Please feel free to share the link below with your neighbors. They can sign up for the email updates as we go forward. The link to the sign-up form is under the Public Involvement title.
We will be updating the site in the coming weeks to add more information about the Butler to Crescent segment.
As always, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
