PA 63 (Sumneytown Pike)/PA 309 Connector Section HT3 (Phase III) – Currently In Preliminary Engineering
About HT3 (Phase III)
The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) is continuing its plan to improve system connectivity along the five-mile corridor between Route 63 (Sumneytown Pike), just north of the Pennsylvania Turnpike Lansdale Interchange, to Route 309 in Montgomery and Bucks counties.
The third and final project section of this transportation improvement plan, Section HT3 (Phase III), is currently in preliminary engineering. It extends along E. Township Line Road from Hatfield/Souderton Pike to County Line Road, Route 309 and Fairhill Road in Hatfield and Franconia Townships, Montgomery County, and Hilltown Township, Bucks County. This section covers approximately one-mile of roadway and includes a partial interchange at Route 309 with the replacement of the Fairhill Road bridge over Route 309.
HT3 (Phase III) Design Schedule
Summer 2022: Environmental clearance completed
Late 2022 : Right-of-way acquisition process anticipated to begin

Public outreach is valuable to the Project Team as the PA 63 (Sumneytown Pike)/PA 309 Connector Program improvements are established. The public outreach efforts will continue throughout the remaining phase of HT3.
Engaging the Community
Public outreach is valuable to the Project Team as the PA 63 (Sumneytown Pike)/PA 309 Connector Program improvements are established. On May 24 and May 25, 2022, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) held a series of live, virtual public meetings to provide an update on the Phase III (Section HT3) project and to obtain input from the community. Over the six public meetings, 63 community members attended. Forty-seven comments related to Phase III (Section HT3) were submitted to PennDOT. Below, you can view of a video of the plans display that was shown during the public meetings. The comment period for the plans display ended on June 10. You can reach the project team by visiting the Contact Us page. The public outreach efforts will continue throughout the remaining phase of HT3.
