Consider a Different Route: Township Gives Road Projects Update

There are more road projects than usual this month, Lower Merion Township says.

In addition to typical roadway maintenance, and dealing with the lingering effects of a terrible winter, Lower Merion Township now has to deal with the problems caused by recent severe storms.

All of those factors, the township says, "have created more closures than usual this month."

Current projects in the township include:

  • Mill Creek Road in Gladwyne was closed July 7th between Rose Glen Road and River Road for repairs to the Schuylkill Expressway underpass, and will remain closed for up to three weeks. Machinery and equipment will be on the roadway. Emergency vehicles, residents and buses will not have access. The contractor will open the road over the weekends if possible. This lower stretch of Mill Creek Road does not have any residential homes near the work area.
  • Weather permitting, work continues on Roberts Road in Bryn Mawr. It will be closed from Lancaster Avenue to County Line Road on Monday, July 14, for the installation of sanitary sewer laterals. The road will be closed to all traffic, including emergency vehicles, between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Residents will have access to Roberts Road from either Lancaster Avenue or County Line Road. 
  • Weather permitting, on Monday, July 14, Morris Avenue in Bryn Mawr will be closed between New Gulph and Old Gulph roads for a tree removal. The road will be closed to all traffic, including emergency vehicles, between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. A detour will be posted, and residents will have access.
  • The Mill Creek Road bridge over Mill Creek, also known as the “S Bridge,” is scheduled for repairs beginning Monday, July 14. Weather permitting, this project is anticipated to take two to three months for completion. During this time, Mill Creek Road will be closed continuously to all vehicles from Old Gulph Road to Righters Mill Road. There will be access to the West Mill Creek Park parking lot during this time.
