Ridge Pike Improvement Project
Background: Ridge Pike is owned by Montgomery County from Philadelphia to Norristown. It carries between 20,000 and 30,000 cars each day. The original roadway alignment dates to colonial days as do some of the features along the road. The modern roadway dates from the 1930s and was widened in the 1970s.
The project area is nearly 5 miles long and includes some very complex engineering in the areas near the PA Turnpike, the Norfolk Southern rail lines and the Sunoco pipeline. So the project has been divided into seven manageable segments for engineering and construction. Five segments are in the area between Norristown and Chemical Road; one segment is between Butler Pike and Crescent Avenue and one segment is between Crescent Avenue and Northwestern Avenue in Philadelphia.
Next public meeting is scheduled for TUESDAY, JUNE 6, 2017 at the Whitemarsh Township Building. See Meeting Flyer for more information.

Construction will take place weekdays between 7 am and 3:30 pm. Access will be provided for emergency, mail, school bus and trash services. Residents will have access to their properties but at times will need to enter from a different direction due to changing work zones. Aqua will notify customers 24 hours in advance of any scheduled shutdown, however with any construction project, an emergency shutdown may be necessary. In such case, Aqua will work to restore service as soon as possible.
