PennDOT Opens Two Newly Built Route 309 Ramps

Fri January 14, 2011 - Northeast Edition

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation opened two newly built ramps at the Route 309-Norristown Road Interchange in Lower Gwynedd Township, Montgomery County, on Dec. 20. The ramp openings will now provide motorists with full directional access to both roadways.

On Dec. 20, crews opened the new Norristown Road on-ramp to Route 309 North and the Route 309 South off-ramp to Norristown Road. Both ramps were constructed as part of PennDOT’s $102 million project to rebuild the northern portion of the Route 309 Expressway from the Highland Avenue Interchange to north of Route 63 (Welsh Road).

The ramps will complement the two existing ramps at the interchange: the Norristown Road on-ramp to Route 309 South and the Route 309 North off-ramp to Norristown Road.

PennDOT’s reconstruction of the northern section of the Route 309 Expressway is the final part of the $375 million project to rebuild 10 mi. of the expressway between Cheltenham Avenue, at the Philadelphia border, and Route 63 (Welsh Road) in Lower Gwynedd Township. All work is scheduled to finish in spring 2011.
