Route 63 (Sumneytown Pike) Restricted for Bridge Replacement Project in Montgomery County

A project to replace three bridges in poor condition carrying Route 63 (Sumneytown Pike) over Unami Creek, Ridge Valley Creek and the East Branch of the Perkiomen Creek.

Lane restrictions with flagging are planned at the following locations:

  • Route 63 (Sumneytown Pike) between Long Mill Road and Shady Lane in Upper Salford Township;
  • Intersection of Perkiomenville Road and Old Skippack Road in Upper Salford Township; and
  • Intersection of Route 29 (Gravel Pike), Crusher Road and Upper Ridge Road in Marlborough Township.

Drivers are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work area because backups and delays may occur. All scheduled activities are weather dependent and subject to change.

For this transportation improvement project, Route 63 (Sumneytown Pike) is expected to be closed and detoured in May 2019 through November 2019 for the construction of new bridges over Unami Creek and Ridge Valley Creek. Work is planned on both bridges simultaneously to minimize traffic impacts.

The Route 63 (Sumneytown Pike) bridge over the East Branch of the Perkiomen Creek will remain open during construction as the bridge will be built in stages using half-width construction. This work is expected to begin this spring and finish in spring 2020.
