A series of periodic lane closures will take place next week on several roads in Montgomery and Bucks counties for Route 202 Parkway construction, PennDOT said today.
The new 8.4-mile, state-funded parkway will open in early December to provide motorists with a direct route for travel between Montgomeryville and Doylestown, as well as access to key cross streets.
Motorists on Route 152 (Limekiln Pike) in New Britain and Warrington townships will encounter single lane conditions between Stump Road and Route 202 (Butler Pike) on Monday through Friday (Oct. 22-26) from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. That’s for drainage work, milling and paving.
Motorists on Route 309 (County Line Road) in New Britain and Warrington townships will encounter traffic stoppages between Upper State Road and Stump Road on Monday through Friday (Oct. 22-26) from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. That’s for a temporary truck crossing.
Construction of sign foundations, overhead sign installations and testing of new traffic signal equipment will result in short-term lane closures Monday through Friday (Oct. 22-26) from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the following, PennDOT said:
* Route 202 (Doylestown Road/Butler Avenue) between Route 309 (Bethlehem Pike) in Montgomery Township and Route 611 in Doylestown Township;
* Route 309 (Bethlehem Pike) between the Five Points Intersection in Montgomery Township and Route 63 (Welsh Road) in Lower Gwynedd Township;
* Upper State Road between Route 309 (Bethlehem Pike) in Montgomery Township and Route 202 (W. Butler Avenue) in Doylestown Township; and
* Route 611 Bypass between Turk Road and Limekiln Pike in Doylestown Township.
Pickertown Road, which remains closed between Upper State and Stump roads in Warrington Township, is expected to reopen Monday, Oct. 22.
PennDOT said motorists should anticipate delays and add extra time for travel through the construction areas. All plans are contingent on good weather.
