Unclaimed Property at the Department of Treasury 

The Pennsylvania Treasury is currently seeking the owners of more than $3.4 billion in unclaimed property.

Treasury receives hundreds of millions of dollars in unclaimed property every year. These items and funds go missing, often for things as simple as a misspelled name or an out-of-date address.

Treasury has advertised names and addresses of unclaimed property owners in the Bucks County Courier Times and Doylestown Intelligencer for Bucks County, and the Lansdale Reporter, Pottstown Mercury, and Norristown Times Herald for Montgomery County.

You can also search Treasury’s Unclaimed Property database at www.patreasury.gov or call the Unclaimed Property call center at 1-800-222-2046.

Montgomery County Housing Choice Voucher Application Runs June 6 – 12

Route 63 (Sumneytown Pike) Bridges to Close for Several Months for Replacement 

Two Route 63 (Sumneytown Pike) bridges will be closed and detoured and a third bridge will be reduced to a single lane in Upper Salford and Marlborough townships, Montgomery County beginning next week for bridge replacements over Unami Creek, Ridge Valley Creek and the East Branch of the Perkiomen Creek, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced.

The work schedule is:

  • Monday, June 3, through spring 2020, Route 63 (Sumneytown Pike) will be reduced to a single lane between Long Mill Road and Shady Lane. Traffic will be controlled using a temporary traffic signal;
  • Monday, June 3, through late fall, Long Mill Road will be closed between Moyer Road and Bergey Road. During the closure, all motorists will be detoured over Morwood Road, Route 63 (Sumneytown Pike) and Old Sumneytown Pike; and
  • Wednesday, June 5, through late fall, Route 63 (Sumneytown Pike) will be closed between Thompson Road and Gerryville Pike. During the closure, passenger vehicles will be directed to use Old Sumneytown Pike, Perkiomenville Road, Crusher Road and Route 29 (Gravel Pike). Truck traffic will be directed to use Route 113 (Harleysville Pike), Route 73 (Skippack Pike) and Route 29 (Gravel Pike). Local traffic will be directed to use Zepp Road, Hill Road, Dietz Mill Road and Route 563 (Ridge Road).

Local access will be maintained up to the construction zone for local residents. Drivers are advised to allow extra time when traveling near the work areas because backups and delays will occur.
