PennDOT hopes to open Rte. 23 on Wednesday

PennDOT hopes to open Rte. 23 on Wednesday



Okay, fellow motorists.

Cross your fingers and toes, hold your breath, do whatever it takes to summon good fortune for the work crews putting the finishing touches on the piece of Rte. 23 that has been closed to traffic in Montgomery County.

Eugene J. Blaum, the spokesman for PennDOT's District 6, says PennDOT hopes to reopen Rte. 23 in West Conshohocken on Wednesday, Aug. 1.

"Hopefully, the rain stays away during the day early next week, so the work that remains to be completed is not delayed," Blaum says.     

Rte. 23 has been closed seemingly forever while work crews reconfigure the intersection at Balligomingo Road, so that it comes to a T.

We were fine with that closing. But since PennDOT closed Balligomingo Road on July 9, commuters have been sitting in traffic for up to 25 minutes at Holstein near Trinity Road. Not good, some of the drivers have been reporting.

We are hoping the reopening of Rte. 23 will solve that problem.
