Closures & Detours
Closure/Expect Delays: Sterigere Street in Norristown
Construction began on Monday, March 6, to replace County bridge 177 to improve mobility and safety on Sterigere Street between Stanbridge Street and Harding Boulevard in the Municipality of Norristown, Montgomery County.
Under this contract, Montgomery County’s construction contractor will remove and replace the entire existing bridge structure and approaches over Stony Creek to allow for corridor and waterway improvements. This will eliminate the current weight posting of the bridge and improve safety along the corridor and waterway.
Motorists are advised of a road closure is scheduled on Sterigere Street between Stanbridge Street and Harding Boulevard for replacement of existing bridge through January 24. Please allow extra time when traveling through the area because backups and delays may occur. A temporary Pedestrian Bridge will be erected to maintain the walkability of the area.
Due to the nature of construction and closure of the bridge, a detour has been established. Motorists will be directed to follow the posted detour route via Stanbridge Street, Marshall Street, Markley Street and Harding Boulevard.
Expect Delays: Ridge Pike across multiple municipalities
The Ridge Pike Improvement Project involves the full reconstruction of Ridge Pike between Norristown and Philadelphia, with additional widening and safety improvements at specific locations. The project will lessen congestion, improve safety, improve stormwater management, provide safe areas for pedestrians, and help keep the adjacent communities economically competitive.
