King of Prussia, PA – Weekday lane restrictions are scheduled in both directions on Oxford Valley Road/Reading Avenue between Edgewood Road and Main Street in Lower Makefield Township and Yardley Borough, on Monday, September 18, through Friday, September 22, from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM, for patching, milling and paving as part of a project to resurface 10 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 the work zone because slowdowns will occur during construction. The contractor's schedule is dependent on the weather.
Additional state highways scheduled for resurfacing under this contract include:
• Marienstein Road/Bridgeton Hill Road between Route 611 (Easton Road) and Route 32 (River Road) in Nockamixon and Bridgeton townships.
State highways completed under this resurfacing project include:
• Route 532 (Buck Road) between Route 213 (Bridgetown Pike) and Rocksville Road in Lower Southampton and Northampton townships; and
• Gibson Road/Bristol Road between Bensalem Boulevard and Overland Road in Bensalem 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.
