PennDOT Holding Public Meeting for Markley Street Improvement Project

The public is invited to an open house event to review plan for the reconstruction of Markley Street in Norristown.

According to a release from the Municipality of Norristown, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) is moving forward with the Markley Street Improvement Project which includes rebuilding and improving Markley Street and Johnson Highway.

PennDOT considers public input an important part of the process and is holding a public meeting on Thursday, Jan. 24, from 6 to 9 p.m. at Eisenhower Science and Technology Leadership Academy at Markley Street and Coolidge Boulevard. PennDOT officials and Markley Street Improvement Project team members will be on hand to answer residents' questions and concerns. 

Phase I (Section 520) of the project incudes reconstruction of Markley Street from Elm Street to Johnson Highway and will include improvements to Johnson Highway and the Main Street Bridge over Stony Creek. Construction on Phase I is scheduled to begin in spring 2013.

Phase II (Section 510) includes the area just south of Main Street up to Elm Street. Construction on Phase II is scheduled for spring 2015.

2015? Really? First of all the street right outside of Penndot has been totally jacked up for a long time. Right outside were they keep the machines for this kind of stuff!! Besides that area Johnson Highway doesnt even need work. How about more of the residential areas? You can't even drive down some of these streets without feeling like your on a bumpy ride.

The PennDOT building is in East Norriton. They have to do that work, not Norristown.
