The Pride of Pennsylvania


Perkiomen Township was established in 1886 after a court appointed commission split Skippack Township and Perkiomen Township along the Perkiomen Creek. At that time the township was classified as a township of the second-class. Under that classification, a Board of Supervisors was established as the governing body. This body can be made up of either three or five members. In Perkiomen Township’s case the board is made up of five members.

Perkiomen Township will be performing road improvements on Route 29 where it intersects with Bridge Street/Graterford Road beginning on January 23, 2023.   This project will include road improvements as well as the installation of a permanent traffic signal at this location.  Under the PennDOT Traffic Signal Permit, the installation of these improvements will go from Monday, January 23 through Friday September 1, 2023.  The work is scheduled to be performed from 7:00 AM to 4:00 PM with lane closures only permitted between 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM.  All scheduled activities are weather dependent as well as receipt of the construction materials.  These issues may result in gaps as the project progresses.  There will be NO detour for this project.  The traveling public is advised to allow extra time because there will be backups and delays while working at this intersection.
