PennDOT will hold an open house public plans display on Wednesday, May 29, from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., at 1441 Salford Station Road in Salford.

The open house will be to inform citizens about an upcoming project to construct a roundabout to improve travel and safety at the intersection of Old Skippack Road and Schwenksville Road/Shelly Road in Upper Salford Township

The purpose of the open house is to present the public with progress plans and a status update on the project. The meeting will be conducted as an open-house plans display where citizens will have the opportunity to circulate among the subject displays to gather information and discuss the different facets of the project with PennDOT’s design team.

Under this project, PennDOT will construct a single-lane roundabout at the intersection of Old Skippack Road and Schwenksville Road/Shelly Road; relocate existing utilities and install new drainage facilities.

The purpose of the project is to reduce angle crashes and vehicular speeds; increase sight distance; and improve congestion through the intersection.

Construction bids on this project are expected to open in fall 2020. The project is anticipated to be funded with 100 percent federal dollars.

Motorists can check conditions on more than 40,000 roadway miles by visiting or downloading the 511PA application for iPhone and Android devices. 511PA, which is free and available 24 hours a day, provides traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts, traffic speed information, and access to more than 860 traffic cameras.
