The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation will conduct a public meeting Thursday about its Route 202 (Poole’s Corner) intersection improvement project in Doylestown Borough, Doylestown and Buckingham townships.  

PennDOT staffers and the design team will provide an overview of the project and answer questions and concerns from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Doylestown Township Building, 425 Wells Road, Doylestown.

The project calls for realigning the intersection of State Street and Route 202 to create a T-intersection; widen the intersection of Route 313 (Swamp Road) and Route 202 to provide left and right turn lanes; and widen Route 202 between Route 313 and Mechanicsville Road to provide shoulders.

The project is in the final design stage. Construction is expected to start next fall and finish in late 2014.
