In Central Bucks and Montgomery counties, there will be occasional lane closures on state roads for construction of the Route 202 Parkway.

Final paving and other road construction at the southern end of the Parkway in Upper Gwynedd, Lower Gwynedd and Montgomery townships 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.
