Summit Avenue will be closed for repairs between Cedar Street and Walnut Street, Monday, September 15th from 7:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. This road repair has been escalated to the highest priority due to the deteriorating condition of the sub-base. The project will consist of milling, repair of the sub-base, paving and sealing. Please adjust your driving routes accordingly to avoid delays during this project. Accommodations will be made for residents directly affected to access their residence during construction. Your patience and understanding is greatly appreciated as we continue to address infrastructure repairs throughout the Borough.
If you have any questions or require any special accommodations, please feel free to contact the Borough at 215-885-0700.


With school back in session, the Police Department asks that drivers be particularly cautious about the many children walking the streets of our Borough to and from school.
As a reminder, Jenkintown has several well-marked “school zones”, where a 15 mph speed limit will be strictly enforced mornings and at dismissal time. Please be mindful of the school zones, but also drive with our children in mind at ALL times of day and night.
We wish everyone a safe and happy school year!
– Chief DiValentino
