PennDOT Ridge Pike & Germantown Pike Intersection Re-Alignment Project

PennDOT is in the design process for a project in Lower Providence Township that is part of a plan to improve travel and safety on both sides of the bridge carrying Ridge Pike over the Perkiomen Creek into Collegeville Borough. Under this project, PennDOT will realign and reconfigure roadways and intersections on either side of the bridge. The re-alignment of Route 29 (1st Avenue) in Collegeville was completed with the Royal Farms development. In Lower Providence Township, the Ridge Pike and Germantown Pike intersection will be eliminated and a new alignment tying Germantown Pike into Ridge Pike further east of the current intersection will be created.

Construction is anticipated to begin late summer 2024.

A presentation on the proposed project, previously known as the Perkiomen Creek Crossing Project, was made at the May 6, 2021 Board of Supervisors meeting. Questions on the project should be directed to Nathan Parrish, P.E., Consultant Project Manager, at c-nparrish@pa.gov.

The May 6, 2021 presentation materials and are below:

 
Previously, PennDOT hosted an open house on Nov. 4, 2018, to introduce the proposed improvements. Below is a link to that presentation:

The Board of Supervisors is proud to announce that the Township is moving forward with an important first phase to the realignment project for the Park/Eagleville/Crawford intersection. The Township has secured a $1 million grant from PennDOT to perform the preliminary engineering and final design for the project. This is a great example of an intergovernmental partnership that works to benefit the community. We will continually provide progress updates on this web page.


Lower Perkiomen Valley Regional Sewer Authority Middle Interceptor Project

The Lower Perkiomen Valley Regional Sewer Authority (LPVRSA) has begun its Middle Interceptor Project. The project is the final component of the plan to expand the Perkiomen Creek Interceptor. Questions or concerns about the project should be directed to the LPVRSA Manager Michael McGann, (610) 676-9040. Click here for background and detailed description of the project.

Currently, construction accesses which are complete and will continue to see some construction traffic are located in Collegeville at First Ave/Chestnut Street Ext. and in Upper Providence in the Yerkes area near Hopwood Road on RTE 29. A new access being used is in Lower Providence Township at the dead end of Yerkes Road. 

Land clearing and silt fence has been 100% installed from Collegeville to Yerkes Island and completed on Yerkes Island. The clearing crew is currently working in Lower Providence from Yerkes Road to Waterfall Circle. Clearing work includes removing trees and brush plus installation of silt fence.  Allan Myers, the construction company awarded the bid, will be conducting some excavation work in these areas for test digging. They will be using the former Stiefel Property, now LPVRSA property, next to the Arcola Road Bridge on Cider Mill Road. They will be working in that area clearing the Arcola Island (upstream from the bridge) and installing silt fence over the next several weeks. Work will continue upstream from there onto Pfizer’s property. 

Next crews will move back onto Yerkes Island and work upstream toward Collegeville preparing to install pipe and manholes. The preparation will include blasting and hammering rock if necessary.  All of the blasting will be conducted in accordance with PA state laws. The blasting is scheduled for the end of September through October.  Pipe and manhole installation will follow in this area with the goal of completion in January. The silt fence will remain after pipe installation because the contractor will have to return at a later date to tie-in the connections to the new interceptor.
