PennDOT is currently in the design phase of a project to re-align the roadways and intersections on both sides of the bridge carrying Ridge Pike over the Perkiomen Creek and into Collegeville Borough. The project is projected to start in the spring or summer of 2024 to 2025.

Route 29 (1st Avenue) has already been re-aligned in Collegeville, in the Royal Farms development. Now, in Lower Providence Township, the Germantown Pike and Ridge Pike intersection will be eliminated, and the new alignment will connect Germantown Pike into Ridge Pike further east of the current intersection. PennDOT already presented the project (formerly known as the Perkiomen Creek Crossing Project) in May 2021 and invited public comment.

The entire project spans about one mile, and is not considered a major project. It will eliminate the current Y-shaped intersection and move the entire intersection east. It will now be a four-way intersection which redirects Germantown Pike into the intersection via roundabout. The new connector road is planned to continue southwest to meet up with Pechins Mill Road. This allows for the eventual construction of a second bridge over Perkiomen Creek in Collegeville.

The project is currently in the design stage, and will move into the construction phase sometime in 2024 or 2025. Right now, the information collected from public and municipal meetings will be integrated into detailed design. Engineering and environmental investigations will be performed, and a final design will be presented before construction can start.

The project is intended to improve overall safety, which should reduce rear-end and angle accidents. It is designed to improve vehicle mobility and overall traffic times as well, reducing congestion and making it a more efficient intersection. At this time, there is no official estimate as to how long the project will take to complete.
