With the City of Philadelphia situated approximately 17 miles to the east and easy access to the Pennsylvania Turnpike, Schuylkill Expressway, Interstate 476 and the Route 202 and Route 422 corridors, Lower Providence Township is truly strategically located for the projected growth into the 21st Century.
