Section HT3 (Phase III) – Currently In Preliminary Design
The final section of the PA 63/309 Connector extends 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 a replacement of the bridge on Fairhill Road over Route 309. Alignment alternatives were presented to stakeholders in May 2019 for their concurrence and the Direct Connection option was selected to start preliminary design. This option will continue the connector down Township Line Road through the intersection at County Line Road and connect to a partial interchange at Route 309 utilizing Fairhill Road. A Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC) study was initiated to analyze the traffic impacts to the new HT3 alignment. Preliminary Design has been initiated in 2020.
