PennDOT Update on the Old Skippack & Shelly/Schwenksville Road Intersection

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today that utility construction will continue next week on the project to build a roundabout at the intersection of Old Skippack Road and Schwenksville Road/Shelly Road in Upper Salford Township, Montgomery County.  Motorists are advised of the following travel restriction:

Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work area because backups and delays will occur. All scheduled activities are weather dependent.  Under this improvement project, PennDOT will construct a single-lane roundabout to enhance traffic flow through the intersection and install new drainage facilities and roundabout lighting.  The purpose of the project is to reduce angle crashes and vehicular speeds; increase sight distance; and improve congestion through the intersection.  Due to the nature of the construction, a traffic detour will be utilized once the project moves from utility construction to roadway construction.  MEDIA CONTACT: Krys Johnson, 610-205-6797

The New Connector Trail is OPEN!

The Board of Supervisors of Upper Salford Township is happy to report that the Upper Salford Township Connector Trail named the Park to Perkiomen (P2P) is now open. An official ribbon-cutting ceremony will be scheduled later this year. The new $1.15 million dollar trail is beautiful and runs from Upper Salford Park to the Spring Mountain Ski Area (Upper Salford Township owns the ground under the ski slopes) and then connects to the Perkiomen Trail at the bridge on Spring Mount Road. In addition, in an agreement with the Schirk/Hutt family for a conservation easement on 40-acres of woodlands which have been permanently preserved along the new P2P trail. Upper Salford Township would like to thank all the contractors that worked on this trail and also thank the folks that gave the township close to $1 Million dollars of GRANTS to build this trail and preserve the woods, including Montgomery County, Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, Pennsylvania Department of Economic Development, Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission plus 2 PECO grants. The township has some minor things to complete including signs recognizing our grantors and some other directional signage. Upper Salford Township is proud to provide this recreational opportunity for all, not only township residents but regional neighbors too. This is truly a major accomplishment and a great example of regional partners working together including Upper Salford, Montgomery County, and Pennsylvania Departments along with Spring Mountain Adventures, the Schirk family, the Kile family, the township road crew and staff, and our County planners. Thank you to all who made this happen!
