Contract Awarded for $4.2 Mil Upgrade to Route 29

Montco firm Allan A. Myers LP will handle the job.

Andy Dinniman (D-19) announced that Montgomery County based contractor Allan A. Myers LP has been awarded a $4.2 million contract to widen a stretch of Route 29, the Daily Local News is reporting.

The project comprises the construction of an extra north- and southbound lane and five-foot-wide shoulders in a stretch of the throughway between Yellow Springs Road and Phoenixville Pike.

Construction is expected to begin this summer and wrap by June of 2014, during which a single lane of traffic in each direction will remain open.

Dinniman told the Daily Local that PennDOT is improving 29 in anticipation of increased usage of the road when a slip-ramp to the turnpike opens in late 2012.

“The widening and improvement of Route 29 and surrounding roads goes hand-in-hand with the construction of the Route 29 slip-ramp project, a new all-electronic interchange linking Route 29 to the Pennsylvania Turnpike,” the legislator said.

“These projects represent a major transportation improvement to this region, not only by providing shorter, safer commutes, but also by bolstering economic development and job growth.”
