Towamencin Holds Forty Foot Road Improvement Project Ground Breaking Ceremony

HARRISBURG – Today, Towamencin Township held a ceremony to announce the improvement project for Forty Foot Road, according to State Senator Bob Mensch (R-24), who attended the event.

Towamencin Township was awarded $1.8 million through two separate PennDOT Multimodel Transportation grants. These grants will be used to widen a section of Forty Foot Road. This will eliminate a pinch point, which is the source of significant traffic concerns from the motoring public, businesses, and residents in the area, by providing roadway widening for a second westbound through travel lane.

This project will provide a full 5-lane section of roadway throughout Forty Foot Road, from Hatfield Township (Forty Foot Road and Welsh Road) to the Sumneytown Pike and Forty Foot Road intersection in Towamencin Township (1.7 miles) which will facilitate improved traffic flow in this area. This, in turn, will contribute to the re-vitalization of the existing Towamencin Village Shopping Center.

“I am happy to have advocated and be a strong supporter of this project, as it is a significant improvement to Towamencin Township,” Mensch said. “I look forward to seeing the completed project and the notable improvements of traffic patterns that will come with from it.”
