King of Prussia, PA – Weekday and weeknight lane restrictions with flagging are scheduled for the next two weeks on a pair of state highways as part of a project to repair and resurface 12 miles of state highway in Bucks County, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today.
The work schedule is:
• Monday, April 16, through Friday, April 27, from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM, lane restrictions with flagging are scheduled in both directions on Bristol Road between Route 232 (2nd Street Pike) and Route 532 (Buck Road) in Upper Southampton, Northampton and Lower Southampton townships, for paving;
• Monday, April 16, through Friday, April 27, from 6:00 PM to 6:00 AM, lane restrictions with flagging are scheduled in both directions on Bristol Road between Route 232 (2nd Street Pike) and Route 532 (Buck Road) in Upper Southampton, Northampton and Lower Southampton townships, for milling; and
• Monday, April 16, through Friday, April 27, from 6:00 PM to 6:00 AM, lane restrictions with flagging are scheduled in both directions on Bustleton Pike between Bristol Road and Stump Road in Upper Southampton and Lower Southampton townships, for milling and paving.
Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through these work zones because slowdowns will occur during construction. The contractor's schedule is dependent on the weather.
State highways completed under this resurfacing project include:
• Route 263 (York Road) between County Line Road and Tennyson Drive in Warminster Township;
• Langhorne-Yardley Road between Stony Hill Road and Route 332 (Yardley-Newtown Road) in Lower Makefield Township; and
• Route 332 (Jacksonville Road) between County Line Road and Almshouse Road in Ivyland Borough and Warminster and Northampton townships.
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.
Blooming Glen Contractors, Inc., of Blooming Glen, PA, is the general contractor on the $4,403,892 project, which is financed with 100 percent state funds.
