King of Prussia, PA – Otts Road between Miller Road and Route 29 (Gravel Pike) in Perkiomen Township, Montgomery County will reopen to traffic on Tuesday, December 18, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today. The highway had been closed since May 2017 for reconstruction to realign the highway as part of an $11.1 million project to improve travel and safety at the intersection of Route 29 (Gravel Pike) at Plank Road/Otts Road; the intersection of Route 73 (Skippack Pike) at Plank Road; and the Meyers Road, Seitz Road and Township Line Road intersection in Skippack, Perkiomen and Limerick townships.
The improvements include widening the intersection of Route 73 (Skippack Pike) and Plank Road to include left turn lanes on both roads; relocating Otts Road to align with Plank Road at Route 29 (Gravel Pike) to create a four-leg intersection; adding left turn lanes on Route 29 (Gravel Pike) at Plank Road/Otts Road; adding left turn lanes on Plank Road and Otts Road at Route 29 (Gravel Pike); realigning Meyers Road to intersect with Township Line Road; realigning Seitz Road to form a T-intersection with Meyers Road; installing new traffic signals along the project corridor; and improving the roadway alignment in three locations.
H & K Group, Inc., of Skippack, Montgomery County, is the general contractor on the project which is financed with 100 percent state funds.
