Project Overview

The purpose of the PA 63 (Sumneytown Pike)/PA 309 Connector Program is to provide improved system connectivity between Sumneytown Pike just north of the Pennsylvania Turnpike’s Lansdale Interchange to PA 309, encompassing a five-mile corridor located in Montgomery and Bucks Counties, PA. As part of the program, a series of projects are being developed to address traffic congestion, safety, and roadway deficiencies. The projects will enhance overall quality of life by reducing congestion, supporting economic development initiatives, and fulfilling the region’s transportation goals.

Project Phases
Construction will occur in three distinct phases:

Phase I (Section HAT) – Complete
The first phase of the project (Section HAT) was successfully completed and opened to traffic in May 2012. Section HAT included roadway and intersection improvements to Wambold Road (S.R. 1058) from Sumneytown Pike to Allentown Road, and the realignment of Sumneytown Pike (S.R. 63) north of the PA Turnpike Lansdale Interchange. The addition of roadside stormwater management facilities and extensive wetland and stream mitigation was an important component of Section HAT.

Phase II (Section HT2) – Currently In Design
Phase II (Section HT2) will extend Wambold Road (S.R. 1058) on a new alignment from its current terminus at Allentown Road to the intersection of Cowpath Road and Township Line Road. The project will also improve Township Line Road from Cowpath Road to Hatfield Souderton Pike.

In an effort to advance the project, PennDOT is conducting field investigations, technical studies and preliminary engineering, building upon work completed during Section HAT. Section HT2 construction is expected to begin in 2021.

Section HT2 Proposed Features (For a map of the project area with proposed improvements, click here)

• Construction of new roadway with two 11-foot lanes and 8-foot wide paved shoulders
• Realignment of tight curves and intersection doglegs to promote roadway safety
• Addition of left-turn and right-turn lanes and traffic signals needed to
accommodate increased traffic volumes
• Inclusion of additional stormwater facilities
• Introduction of noise walls
• Realignment of existing multi-use trail

Phase III (Section HT3) – Currently In Planning
It is anticipated that Section HT3 will improve the remaining portion of Township Line Road while connecting County Line Road and S.R. 0309 to Section HT2. . Construction start for HT3 is undetermined.
