Road Work to Affect Doylestown-Area Roads
The Route 202 Parkway is scheduled to open in December, but until it does, road work continues.
Periodic lane restrictions are scheduled this week on Routes 202 and 309 as construction continues on roads connecting to the new Route 202 Parkway, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation said.
PennDOT plans to open the new 8.4-mile-long roadway in early December. The Route 202 Parkway will provide a direct route for travel between Doylestown and Montgomeryville.
Short-term lane closures will be in place along Route 202 (DeKalb Pike/Butler Avenue) between Hancock Road in Upper Gwynedd Township and Route 611 in Doylestown on Monday through Friday (Nov. 12-16) from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Motorists also may encounter short-term lane restrictions along Route 309 (Bethlehem Pike) between the Five Points intersection in Montgomery Township and Route 63 (Welsh Road) in Lower Gwynedd Township on Monday through Thursday (Nov. 12-15) from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Construction crews are completing traffic signal testing, sign and guiderail installation, landscaping and miscellaneous activities in areas that were widened to improve access to the Parkway.
Miscellaneous construction also may cause periodic lane closures Monday through Thursday (Nov. 12-15) from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Upper State Road between Route 309 (Bethlehem Pike) in Montgomery Township and Route 202 (Butler Avenue) in Doylestown Township, and on the Route 611 Bypass between Turk Road and Limekiln Pike in Doylestown Township.
Paving and line striping on County Line Road in Montgomery, Warrington and New Britain townships may result in short-term traffic restrictions on Saturday (Nov. 10) from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Monday through Friday (Nov. 12-16) from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. between Kingston Way and Horizon/Summer Ridge Drive.
County Line Road has been widened in this area to four lanes with a center turn lane at the intersection with the Route 202 Parkway.
Motorists should anticipate delays and add extra time for travel through the construction areas. All planned activities are contingent on the weather.
