Route 63 and Route 113 Overnight Lane Restrictions Scheduled for Resurfacing Operations in Montgomery County
Weeknight lane restrictions are scheduled on Route 63 (Welsh Road/Moreland Road) for milling and paving operations as part of an improvement project to repair and resurface 20 miles of state highway in Montgomery County, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today.
The work is schedule for Tuesday, September 5, through Friday, September 29, from 7:00 PM to 5:00 AM, weeknight lane restrictions are scheduled on Route 63 (Welsh Road/Moreland Road) between Kimball Avenue and Edge Hill Road in Abington and Upper Moreland townships, for milling, paving and utility adjustments.
Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through these work zones because slowdowns will occur during construction. The contractor's schedule is dependent on the weather.
Under this improvement project, PennDOT is milling the existing roadway surface and repaving the state highways with new asphalt. The new pavement will seal the roadways and provide motorists with a smoother riding surface.
Work on the entire project is expected to be completed in late October.
