Lafayette Street Transportation Improvements Project
Norristown Borough and Plymouth Township, Montgomery County, PA
PROJECT OWNER Montgomery County Planning Commission
Susquehanna Civil (then Pinto Engineering) was originally awarded the preliminary design phase of this project in 2001 as part of the McCormick Taylor design team. The projects entail reconstructing and widening the existing Lafayette Street in Norristown and extend it into Plymouth Township. It will also create a full electronic toll interchange with the Pennsylvania Turnpike. The Lafayette Street Corridor Project will significantly improve access to Norristown and its riverfront, providing a transportation framework that will spur economic development.
The land and boundary survey encompassed approximately 1 linear mile of roadway and rail. Portions of the Pennsylvania Turnpike mainline were surveyed at night. The preliminary right-of-way included approximately (400) properties along the corridor. In 2008 Susquehanna Civil was awarded surveying services for the final design phase of the Lafayette Street extension and interchange with the Pennsylvania Turnpike as part of the McCormick Taylor team.
