Work to Begin on Spring Garden Street Bridge

The Borough has just been informed that beginning Monday, June 12, the Spring Garden Street Bridge over Interstate 76 will be closed to both pedestrian and vehicle traffic between Chestnut Street and Spruce Lane in West Conshohocken Borough, Montgomery County.

During construction, Spring Garden Street motorists will be detoured over Crawford Avenue, Route 23 (Conshohocken State Road). Local access will be maintained up to the construction zone.

As part of the rehabilitation, crews will repair the existing concrete bridge deck using hydro demolition and apply a latex modified concrete overlay, reseal deck joints at the abutments, install new guiderail as well as complete other scheduled repairs.

Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the area because slowdowns will occur. The work schedule is weather dependent.

It is anticipated that the closure will be in place approximately one month.
The detour will be posted and signage installed. Access to local businesses and
driveways will be maintained throughout the duration of the project.

As the projects progresses the Borough will provide updates on the website.

   West Conshohocken Borough Sewer System

At the March 28, 2017 Council meeting, the West Conshohocken Borough Council voted to sell the West Conshohocken Borough sewer conveyance system to the Borough of Conshohocken Authority. The $ 9.5 million sale should be finalized during the summer, subject to Conditions Precedent in the Asset Purchase Agreement.

The West Conshohocken Borough Council began a deliberative process during the summer of 2016 to analyze and determine the value of the sewer conveyance system. Borough Council engaged Public Financial Management, Inc., (PFM) and Dilworth Paxson, LLP to work with the Borough through the comprehensive competitive procurement process in the event there would be a decision to proceed with the sale of the system.

Since 1985, the West Conshohocken Borough sewer conveyance system has been connected to the Borough of Conshohocken Authority for the purpose of the treatment and disposal of sanitary sewage. Click on Facts for more information.
