Work for Upper Salford Roundabout Resumes Monday

UPPER SALFORD PA – Utility work on construction of a roundabout at the intersection of Old Skippack, Schwenksville, and Shelly roads in Upper Salford Township is scheduled to resume Monday (Nov. 21, 2022) between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. The work will continue weekdays, and at the same times, through Dec. 30 (Friday), the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation said.

The roundabout is intended to reduce angle crashes and vehicular speeds, increase sight distance, and improve congestion through the intersection.

During the period, drivers will find Old Skippack Road reduced to a single lane with flagging at its intersection with Schwenksville and Shelly roads. They should allow extra time when traveling through the work area, because backups and delays will occur, the department noted. All scheduled activities are depend on acceptable weather.

Traffic detours will be put in place, according to the department, and part or all of the intersection is expected to be closed once the project moves from utility construction into each of two stages of roadway construction. During both closures, drivers will be directed to use a detour route over Lederach, Haldeman, and Salfordville roads, Route 113, and Route 63.

Allan Myers of Worcester PA is the general contractor on the $1.59 million project. It is expected to be finished during Summer 2023.
