PennDOT to Make Traffic Light Modifications to Alleviate Some Congestion from Greenwood Avenue Bridge Closing
Posted on Wednesday April 10, 2019

Traffic Light Modifications Go Into Effect Tomorrow to Alleviate Traffic Congestion 
from Greenwood Avenue Bridge Closing 

The closure on Greenwood Avenue between Hedgerow Lane and Spruce Lane for the bridge rehabilitation project is in effect.  In an effort to help alleviate detour-related traffic congestion associated with the closure of the Greenwood Avenue Bridge (near Hedgerow Lane), the Township requested PennDOT modify traffic signal settings in the area.  The changes detailed below are scheduled to be implemented by PennDOT on April 11, 2019.  PennDOT will then monitor the resultant traffic impacts and adjust the revised settings as warranted.

Church Road and Greenwood Avenue

  • Remove the split phase timing on Church Road (eliminate the delayed green for Church Road eastbound traffic).
  • Cover the left-turn arrow signal for Church Road westbound traffic.
  • Increase the allotted green time for through traffic on Church Road.

Church Road and Rices Mill Road

  • Increase the allotted green time for through traffic on Church Road.

    Church Road and Limekiln Pike

  • Increase the dedicated left-turn green time for westbound Church Road traffic turning onto southbound Limekiln Pike.

The Greenwood Avenue Bridge crosses over a branch of Rock Creek is a single-span stone masonry arch structure, and was built in 1908. The Greenwood Avenue Bridge is one of seven bridges in Philadelphia, Delaware and Montgomery counties that Pennsylvania Department of Transportation is repairing under a $7,220,000 bridge improvement project.
