Whitemarsh Township Receives Grant for Improvements at Joshua and Flourtown Roads

The Montgomery County Commissioners announced at their meeting on Thursday, October 17th that six projects across the county will receive just over $1 million in Montgomery County Transportation Program grants for 2019.

This is the second round of grants for this program, which is funded by the County’s $5 Motor Vehicle Registration Fee.

Municipalities were invited to apply for funds to implement projects that include road construction and repair, traffic sign and signal installation, crosswalk markings, curb ramps, pedestrian trails within public right-of-way and street lighting.

Locally, a $199,504 grant went to Whitemarsh Township, which is utilizing the funds for the installation of signal mast arms, ADA ramps, sidewalks, and trail-standard roadway crossings at the intersection of Flourtown Road and Joshua Road.
