Portion of Edge Hill Road in Abington set to close for four months

PennDOT has announced that Edge Hill Road is scheduled to close between Jenkintown Road and Easton Road in Abington Township starting July 8th and continuing through November. During the closure, the road will be paved to improve safety on Edge Hill Road and adjacent streets.

The closure will be 24 hours and seven days a week. During this time, those wishing to use Edge Hill Road will be directed to use Easton Road and Tyson Avenue.

The press release described the project as follows:

Under this project, PennDOT is reconstructing Edge Hill Road and Tyson Avenue to improve safety by incorporating curbing, parking lanes, sidewalks, new signing, and signalized intersection improvements. The project also includes upgrades to Jenkintown Road and several adjacent township roads including Ardsley Avenue, Edgecomb Road, Custer Avenue and Bradfield Road. In addition to safety improvements, flooding concerns will be addressed through extensive drainage improvements and green stormwater practices.

After construction, Edge Hill Road will be converted to a one-way road carrying eastbound traffic only from Jenkintown Road to Bradfield Road and will remain a two-way road from Bradfield Road to Route 611 (Easton Road). Tyson Avenue will continue to carry two-way traffic through the project limits.
