CONSTRUCTION RESUMES ON FIRST AVENUE LINEAR PARK!
Construction resumes on the multi-use pathway beginning at Moore Road and extending east on either side of First Avenue. Based on guidelines issued by Governor Wolf, Pennsylvania Secretary of Health, and PennDOT, the project contractor has created a COVID-19 Safety Plan to protect the health and safety of their team and the public. Construction workers will practice public health protocols, including:
- health screenings of all construction staff at the site;
- provide facemasks and gloves to be worn while on the job;
- provide handwashing stations and regularly sanitize equipment; and
- practice social distancing unless the safety of the public or workers require deviation.
Due to reduced traffic volume on First Avenue, restrictions on construction activities during rush hour periods have been suspended but the contractor will comply with Upper Merion’s noise ordinance. Flaggers will be on site if lane closures are necessary. We will monitor the traffic volume and revert to the original time-of-day restrictions if construction creates excessive impacts.

First Avenue Linear Park Bus Shelter Project
In addition to the multimodal path, King of Prussia District is partnering with Upper Merion Township and Montgomery County to install new solar panel bus shelters on First Avenue as part of the new Linear Park under construction. These new ADA compliant bus shelters will be installed on new concrete pads with benches, trash cans, and solar-powered lighting. This project is financed in part by Montgomery County through the Montco 2040 Implementation Grant Program.
