Traffic Improvement Projects
Coming soon: projected completion dates for all projects.
Detail on projects in the office park
Construction of the road diet and Cross County Trail’s local section are ongoing. This approximately 2.5-mile trail through the office park will connect to the SEPTA Fort Washington train station, to address the last mile commuter challenge, and provide alternative transit modes to commuters.
The project’s first of four sections was completed last summer. Construction will begin within the next few weeks on the second section along Virginia Drive from 1100 Virginia to Susquehanna Road, with completion scheduled by the fall, 2020.
- Note: no additional full road closures or detours will be required for these projects in the office park. Individual lane closures and traffic diversion will be managed to minimize disruption during the remaining construction.
The third section along Commerce Drive from Pennsylvania Avenue to Delaware Drive will involve construction in three stages - estimated to start in the winter, 2020 and will take approximately 18 months to complete.
The fourth and final section will be along Delaware Drive, with construction estimated to start in 2020.
Roadway improvements at the Dresher Triangle will improve the congested area at the Dresher end of the office park. This road redesign in the area bounded by Susquehanna Road, Limekiln Pike and Dreshertown Road/Virginia Drive will increase roadway capacity and flow, and improve safe access for all transportation modes. The Cross County Trail will be extended and sidewalks will connect, to improve walking and biking access through the Dresher Triangle.
Repairs to the bridge on Delaware Drive are in the planning stage; a $1million grant has been secured from the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission. Construction duration is estimated at 6-9 months depending upon weather, and the project will require a full closure of Delaware Drive at the bridge.
