Final Design began in 2014 for the total reconstruction and widening of the Pa. Turnpike's Northeastern Extension (I-476) north of Clump Road (milepost A38) to north of Steinsburg Road (milepost A44.5). The existing four-lane highway (74' wide) will be reconstructed to accommodate six 12-foot travel lanes with 12-foot left and right shoulders and 2' median barrier (122' wide). The project will also include the removal and replacement of five mainline bridges. The project corridor traverses Salford Township in Montgomery County and West Rockhill and Milford Townships in Bucks County.

The project also entails work at the Quakertown Interchange and the replacement of the following bridges over the Turnpike:

  • Upper Ridge Road (State Route 4033)
  • Trumbauersville Road (State Route 4051)
  • John Fries Highway (State Route 663)
  • Steinsburg Road (State Route 4059)

In addition, the Turnpike Bridge over Kumry Road (State Route 4055) will be replaced.

The Project's Design Team continues to update base mapping and conduct field work to document existing traffic, environmental, and subsurface conditions. An Open House Plans Display was held on December 3, 2014 to introduce the Preliminary Design Plans to the Public. The materials from the Open House can be viewed on the Newsroom page
