HT2 (Phase II) – Currently In Construction
The second section of the project includes building a new roadway alignment from Allentown Road to Cowpath Road and reconstructing Township Line Road from Cowpath Road to Hatfield/Souderton Pike in Hatfield and Franconia Townships. This section covers 2.3 miles. The project includes five signalized intersections, noise walls on both sides between Elroy Road and Cowpath Road, and 1.5 miles of multi-use trail. Right-of-way negotiations are completed. The project was advertised for construction in the fall of 2021 and construction is underway. Please see PennDOT press release for more information.
Motorists are advised of the following travel restriction:
- Monday, July 31, through mid-fall, the slip ramp from Route 63 (Sumneytown Pike) at Old Forty Foot Road to southbound Interstate 476 will be closed and detoured. Motorists will be directed to use the Pennsylvania Turnpike Lansdale Interchange to access southbound I-476.
- Eastbound Route 63 (Sumneytown Pike) will be reduced to a single lane approaching the Pennsylvania Turnpike Lansdale Interchange in Towamencin Township on Wednesday, August 23, from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM, for concrete island construction.

This ramp improvement is part of PennDOT’s Route 309 Section HT2 project, which covers 2.3 miles and is the second of three contracts to move to construction to build the five-mile-long Route 309 Connector Project in Montgomery and Bucks counties to enhance mobility and safety for motorists traveling between Route 309 and the Pennsylvania Turnpike Interchange.
Sound Wall Construction:
Between Elroy Rd and Cowpath Rd new roadway construction consists of six (6) Sound Walls that are set to begin construction activities starting in January 2023.
In January 2023 and following months, Allan Myers, and its subcontractors will begin performing construction activities related to the Sound Wall construction in the area noted above. This work will consist of sound wall drilling and caisson construction, concrete, and earthwork operations, and then culminate in the setting of posts and panels to complete the noise wall construction.
