Road Closure Alert

Edgewood Road – Update

Drainage and road improvements at the railroad crossing have been completed and the road has been paved.  SEPTA must now elevate the crossing gate and mast arm above the final grade per PennDOT specifications.

The road is scheduled to be reopened around December 16, 2016

Oxford Valley Road bridge over U.S. 1

The bridge will remain open while the contractor repairs structural damage to the bridge. Construction on the bridge is scheduled to finish in June 2017.

Repairs will be made under three separate traffic patterns.

  • In phase one, the center of the bridge will be closed and traffic will shift to the far sides of the structure. This pattern will be in place through February 2017.
  • In phase two, all traffic will run on the south side of the structure from February through April 2017.
  • In phase three, all traffic will shift to the north side of the bridge from April through June 2017.
 

Quiet Zone Update

Once construction at all three crossings has been completed, the Township is required to send out a “Notice of Quiet Zone Establishment” letter to all official agencies involved.  After this notification has been sent, there is a minimum 21 day waiting period prior to the official establishment of the Quiet Zone which is when the train horns will begin refraining from sounding as per the Quiet Zone regulations. Train crossings will continue to activate the gate crossing closures with warning bells.  Note that Train Engineers will still have the authority to sound the train horns in emergency situations as deemed necessary.
