Lower Gwynedd Township Benefits from Governor Wolf’s Transportation Project Funding

​Governor Wolf Announced yesterday that 45 Multimodal Transportation Projects to benefit 22 counties will receive funding.  Two of those projects will be in Lower Gwynedd Township and equal over one million dollars.  According to Township Supervisor, Kathleen Hunsicker, one of the projects will include reconfiguring and widening to allow for two dedicated thru lanes across the intersection of Bethlehem Pike and Norristown Road.  Hunsicker added that some of the funds will also go towards the engineering studies needed to make these improvements.
The awards for both projects are outlined below from Governor Wolf’s press release:
  • Lower Gwynedd Township — $937,700 for improvements to Spring House Roadway, including roadway widening, pedestrian upgrades, and traffic signal improvements to improve traffic flow and efficiency through the Bethlehem Pike, Norristown Road, and Sumneytown Pike intersection. •

  • Gwynedd Mercy University — $372,260 to address multimodal hazards at the intersection of Evans Road and the campus’s main access point.
