Information provided by Montgomery County:
Montgomery County will conduct a public meeting on Thursday, September 12 for residents to give their input on the Fetters Mill Road Bridge study that is being conducted as part of the data collection and analysis phase of the study.
The meeting, which will be held in the Lower Moreland High School auditorium at 555 Red Lion Road, Huntingdon Valley from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m., will explore three traffic flow options being considered for the one-lane bridge.
The public will be able to review the three options being considered and will have the opportunity to give their feedback on the options. The three options are:
- Two-way traffic across the bridge with alternating directions of traffic controlled by “STOP” signs placed at either end of the bridge
- Two-way traffic across the one-lane bridge with alternating directions of traffic controlled by traffic signals on either side of the bridge, plus additional signals for traffic exiting the Post Office driveway
- One-way traffic across the bridge in the westbound direction only towards Pennypack Lane. Traffic would be controlled by “One-Way” and “Do Not Enter” signs along the approaches to the bridge. Traffic heading in the eastbound direction would be directed to follow Fetters Mill Road south to Terwood Road and then along Terwood Road to Old Welsh Road, then continue east along Old Welsh Road to Huntingdon Pike and then north along Huntingdon Pike back to Fetters Mill Road.
During the meeting Montgomery County officials and staff from Arora and Associates, P.C., the consulting firm on the project, will present preliminary traffic operations studies currently being conducted for the bridge.
