PennDOT to Replace Washington Lane Culvert Over branch of Pennypack Creek in Lower Moreland Township

King of Prussia, PA – Construction is scheduled to begin on Monday, March 21, on a project to replace the culvert carrying Washington Lane over branch of Pennypack Creek in Lower Moreland Township, Montgomery County, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today.

Due to the nature of construction, Washington Lane will be closed and detoured 24/7 between Route 63 (Welsh Road) and Terwood Road beginning Monday, March 21, 2022 through the completion of the project scheduled for late July.

During the closure, Washington Lane motorists will be directed to use Route 63 (Welsh Road) and Terwood Road. Local access will be maintained up to the construction zone.

Built in 1931, the current structure will be replaced with a new box culvert and carries an average of 1,271 vehicles a day.

Washington Lane culvert is one of seven structures in Bucks, Chester, and Montgomery counties that PennDOT is repairing/replacing under a $6.5 million project financed with 100 percent state funds.
