The developer proposed to build 160 apartments and 32 townhomes on the south side of West Cherry Lane, between Lewis Road and Limerick Road in Limerick Township, Montgomery County. The McMahon team was engaged to assist the developer in traffic, signal, and design services that were needed to move the project through the Township review process and also obtain the necessary Highway Occupancy Permit and Signal permits associated with the project. As a part of this project, the Township requested that the applicant install a signal at the intersection of Lewis Road and West Cherry Lane and realign East Cherry Lane directly opposite West Cherry Lane to form the fourth leg of the intersection. The existing East Cherry Road intersection with Lewis Road was removed and a cul-de-sac designed to maintain access for area residents. McMahon prepared a Transportation Impact Study for the site. The McMahon team then commenced work on the new traffic control signal, which was interconnected with the existing signal system along Lewis Road, as well as the design of the intersection including widening Lewis Road to provide separate left-turn lanes in both directions and a separate right-turn lane into the realigned East Cherry Road. From the Transportation Impact Study phase to the approval of the Highway Occupancy Permit, this project was reviewed and approved by both the Township and PennDOT within two years.
