King of Prussia, PA – Weekday lane restrictions with flagging are scheduled on Route 32 (River Road) between Dark Hollow Road and Trails End Lane in Tinicum and Bridgeton townships, on Monday, July 10, through Friday, July 21, from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM, for resurfacing operations as part of a $2.6 million project to repair and resurface 12 miles of state highway in Bucks County, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today.
Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through this area because slowdowns will occur. The work schedule is weather dependent.
Additional state highways scheduled for resurfacing under this contract include:
• Richlandtown Road/Union Road/Main Street between the Tohickon Creek and Towne Court Drive in East Rockhill, Haycock and Richland townships, and Richlandtown Borough; and
• Burnt House Hill Road between Cold Spring Creamery Road and U.S. 202 in Buckingham Township.
Under this improvement project, PennDOT is milling the existing roadway surface and repaving the state highways with new asphalt. The new pavement will seal the roadways and provide motorists with a smoother riding surface.
Work on the entire project is expected to be completed in late October.
Blooming Glen Contractors, Inc., of Blooming Glen, Bucks County, is the general contractor on the $2,616,692 project, which is financed with 100 percent state funds from Act 89, Pennsylvania’s Transportation Plan.
