73, 29 Lane Restrictions, Reductions Next Week

PERKIOMEN PA – Three separate lane reductions or restrictions are scheduled to occur next week in Perkiomen Township, and a fourth is planned for Skippack Township, as Pennsylvania Department of Transportation reconstruction work continues on Routes 29 and 73, and Plank and Meyers roads.

Weather permitting, the work schedule – from Monday through Friday (April 10-14, 2017) in all locations – includes:

  • Reducing Route 29 to one lane between Miller Road and Harrison Road in Perkiomen for utility relocation from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., and 7 p.m. to 5 a.m.;
  • Restricting Route 73 to one lane between Squirrel Hill Road and Perkiomen Creek Road in Skippack for excavation and utility relocation between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.;
  • Restricting Plank Road to one land between Routes 29 and 73 in Perkiomen for utility relocation from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., and 7 p.m. to 5 a.m.; and
  • Reducing Meyers Road to one lane between Seitz and Miller roads in Perkiomen for storm sewer installation from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

During construction, all traffic will be controlled by flagging. Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through construction areas. Slowdowns may occur, PennDOT said.

The work is part of its $11 million project to improve travel and safety at the intersection of Route 29 and Plank Road, Route 73 and Plank Road, and the intersection of Meyers, Seitz, and Township Line roads across Skippack, Perkiomen, and Limerick townships.

H & K Group Inc. of Skippack is the general contractor on the $11,292,416 contract. The project is expected to finish in Spring 2019.
