A $7.2 million project to repair and resurface 11 miles of Route 611 in Montgomery County began Tuesday night.
“We are eager to begin construction to repave this heavily traveled highway in Montgomery County that suffered extensive pavement damage over the past two winter seasons,’ said Acting PennDOT District Executive Christine Reilly. “Motorists will soon enjoy a much smoother ride when traveling on Route 611.”
This pavement improvement project stretches from the Bucks County line to the Philadelphia line, covering all of Route 611 in Montgomery County.

PennDOT’s contractor will begin on southbound Route 611 at Edge Hill Road in Abington and proceed south to Cheltenham Avenue. The operation will then shift to the northbound lanes and work north to the Bucks County line, and finish by looping around to the southbound side of the highway and continue south to the Edge Hill Road intersection. Paving is expected to start in early June.
Crews will resurface Route 611 weeknights from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. the following morning. The resurfacing operation is expected to be completed in late July.
Motorists are advised to allow additional time for travel on Route 611 during daytime and nighttime construction.
