This is a very busy intersection in desparate need of a red light!
As part of the Valley Forge Road/Sumneytown Pike project, which has already had $1.3 million expended in engineering and right of way work, this effort includes the widening of Valley Forge to Snyder Road with a light installed at VF and Snyder Roads. The project has been removed from the Transportation Improvement Plan by the County and the Delaware Valley Planning Commission. There is a 2010 budget item in the Federal Budget for the completion of engineering of this project, but the House and Senate have failed to pass a new Transportation Authorization bill. Towamencin Township has met with State Representatives and Senators, as well as Federal Representatives and Senators over the last three years. Rep Matt Bradford has had an item put in the Budget for completion of engineering.
Given the cost of a traffic light (engineering and installation = $250,000) and the state of the budget and the priorities of the Township, it is not in our budget for this year. This is also a joint intersection with Upper Gwynedd. We are aware of the issue, but without funding we are unable to rectify the situation, which is compounded by the NPSD buses and the high school. Until it is rectified it is incumbent on everyone to practice safe driving at this intersection.
