Millions are being invested in our transportation infrastructure spurring economic development and job opportunities like never before.
Lafayette Street Corridor Extension
Lafayette Street Extension Project is a $95 million project that will spur economic redevelopment in Norristown and the surrounding areas. The Lafayette Street Extension Project will directly connect Norristown to the highway network, making it quicker and easier for people to enter the downtown and Schuykill riverfront. As part of the project, the new turnpike interchange at Lafayette Street is estimated to bring an additional 5,900 to 8,000 trips to the Turnpike per day. The final phase of construction is fully funded with a start date of summer 2017.
