Ridge Pike is owned by Montgomery County from Philadelphia to Norristown. It carries between 20,000 and 30,000 cars each day. The original roadway alignment dates to colonial days as do some of the features along the road. The modern roadway dates from the 1930s and was widened in the 1970s.
The design engineer for the Ridge Pike Improvement Project, Gannett Fleming, has served as an engineering consulting partner in global infrastructure for 100 years. They improve communities through construction services, earth science, facilities, geospatial, transportation, and water-related projects in more than 65 countries.

Montgomery County staff from the Planning Commission and Roads & Bridges departments held several events with the public during the design phase of Section D. Preliminary plans were displayed in 2016, and a more in-depth discussion of project improvements was held in 2017; both events allowed for the public to ask questions and make comments about the proposed improvements. The County also held an open house at the start of the construction phase in April 2022. Materials from each of the public meetings are posted below for reference purposes.
