Lane restrictions for Route 202 Parkway work

Work on the 8.4-mile, $200-million Route 202 Parkway will cause temporary lane closures on several state roads in Bucks and Montgomery counties this week, PennDOT reports.

Installation and testing of traffic signal equipment, installation of overhead signs and other work will cause lane closures from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday through Thursday, at:

     •      Route 202 (Doylestown Road/Butler Avenue) between Route 611 in Doylestown Township and Route 309 (Bethlehem Pike) in Montgomery Township;

•     Upper State Road between Route 202 (W. Butler Avenue) in Doylestown Township and Route 309 (Bethlehem Pike) in Montgomery Township;

•     Route 611 Bypass between Turk Road and Limekiln Pike in Doylestown Township.

•      Route 309 (Bethlehem Pike) between the Five Points intersection in Montgomery Township and Route 63 (Welsh Road) in Lower Gwynedd Township.


Final paving and other road construction at the southern end of the parkway in Upper Gwynedd, Lower Gwynedd and Montgomery townships, Montgomery County, will slow travel on Route 202 (DeKalb Pike) between Swedesford and Knapp roads and on Route 63 (Welsh Road) between Stump and North Wales roads from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Pickertown Road remains closed between Upper State and Stump Roads in New Britain and Warrington townships for construction of the bridge over the parkway.

The parkway is expected to be completed by late fall.
