Turnpike Milepost A31-A38 Project

Widening and Reconstruction,
Northeastern Extension MP A31 to A38

Work on this project is proceeding in accordance with Centers for Disease Control and state Department of Health guidance as well as a project-specific COVID-19 safety plan, which includes protocols for social distancing, use of face coverings, personal and job-site cleaning protocols, management of entries to the jobsite, special signage, and relevant training.

The Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission is widening and reconstructing seven miles of the Northeastern Extension between Milepost A31 and A38 in Lower Salford, Franconia and Salford townships in Montgomery County. The work area is situated between the Lansdale (Exit 31) and Quakertown (Exit 44) interchanges.

Project Summary

Total reconstruction and widening to include a third lane in each direction of seven-plus miles of the Pennsylvania Turnpike's Northeastern Extension between Milepost A31 and Milepost A38 in Montgomery County.

Construction Start: Early 2018

Construction Completion: Late 2020

Project Total: $224.9 million

General Contractor: Richard E. Pierson Construction Company, Inc., Pilesgrove, NJ

Construction Manager: Hill International, Philadelphia, PA

Design Consultant: Urban Engineers, Philadelphia, PA

This $225 million investment is a continuation of the Commission's long-term, 100 percent toll-financed initiative to rebuild, upgrade and modernize "America's First Toll Road", its bridges and facilities. This current improvement project extends the widening and rebuilding of more than 10 miles of the Extension that finished in mid-2017 between the Mid County and Lansdale exits.

Construction between A31 and A38 is expected to take about three years and will be completed with minimum impact on Turnpike travel, though occasional off-peak, short-term lane closures may be necessary for certain stages of construction.
