PennDOT Update on the Old Skippack & Shelly/Schwenksville Road Intersection
Update 7/13/23: The Township was notified by the PennDOT representative that the Roundabout is now open for the public’s use.
Upper Salford Township Board of Supervisors announced at their August 8th meeting they will be meeting with PennDOT representatives to address the center of the Roundabout, the line-of-sight issues, and the lighting.
Update 8/21/23: This is a PennDOT project, which is not finished. The township has met with the PennDOT project managers several times providing feedback about the poor landscaping, poor sight distances and excessive bright lighting.
-We think they will be replacing the landscape sometime in the next month.
-The idea of a mound is to encourage people to slow down, look left and if no traffic is approaching slowly enter the circle. If there is traffic, then YIELD until it is safe to enter.
-The lighting is temporary until the proper fixtures are available. There were supply chain issues with the original fixtures, but in order to open the roundabout they put up these temporary fixtures. We do not know when the correct fixtures will be in.
If you have any concerns, you should contact PennDOT Engineering District 6
7000 Geerdes Boulevard, King of Prussia, PA 19406 Phone: 610-205-6700.
