By car

 

We are located at the intersection of our region’s major traffic thoroughfares. We are minutes from the Pennsylvania Turnpike, the Northeast Extension, the Schuylkill Expressway, the Blue Route; and major routes such as 206/202 and Ridge Pike run through the heart of our community.

And this access is about to get event better. The Lafayette Street Extension Project involves extending Lafayette Street in Norristown to the Pennsylvania Turnpike. The project is a major effort to improve highway access to downtown Norristown and its riverfront. This project is being headed by the Montgomery County Planning Commission in association with PennDOT and the Federal Highway Administration. Visit this website to learn more.

 

By foot and bicycle

 

Norristown boasts architecturally rich, easily walkable communities and business districts that make our community especially friendly to pedestrians and bicyclists. We are also a stop on the Schuylkill Valley bike trail, which stretches from Philadelphia to Valley Forge and beyond. This trail is the backbone for trails across our region, and allows bikers and pedestrians to get to almost anywhere in the region on dedicated trails right from downtown Norristown.
