Construction is expected to begin this month on a portion of the Pennsylvania Turnpike's Northeast Extension, according to a press release.
Crews will be reconstructing and widening a seven-mile stretch of the highway between the Lansdale and Quakertown exits in Montgomery County.
Work includes shrubbery removal, replacing barriers and fencing, adding a lane on both sides and rebuilding four mainline bridges.
The Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission said the new six-lane highway will feature 12-foot shoulders on both sides of the travel lanes.
The entire project is expected to be finished by the end of 2020.
