King of Prussia, PA – The Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission (DRJTBC) is planning to close Route 32 (River Road) weekdays between Woodside Road and Afton Avenue in Lower Makefield Township and Yardley Borough, Bucks County, on Monday, December 7, through Monday, January 4, from 7:00 AM to 5:00 PM, for bridge beam erection, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today.
During the closure, Route 32 (River Road) motorists will be directed to use Woodside Road, Taylorsville Road/Main Street and Afton Avenue.
Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling near the work area because backups and delays will occur. The schedule is weather dependent.
