State Roads Remain Closed in Bucks County

Most of the 40 state roads that still were closed on Thursday in the wake of Hurricane Sandy are in Central and Upper Bucks.

Transportation around Bucks County remained difficult Thursday, as 40 state roads still were closed in the wake of Hurricane Sandy.

As of 9 a.m., 43 state roads remained closed in Bucks County, most of them in Central or Upper Bucks.

That list, however, is constantly changing, said PennDOT spokesman Gene Blaum.

By 1 p.m., four of those listed roads had been reopened, but one more had to be closed, taking the total closed to 40, Blaum said.

The vast majority of roads had to be closed because of utility lines or poles down or trees that became entangled in utility lines, he said. And that lengthens the time it takes to get the road reopened.

"Any utility involvement, and we can’t touch the trees. We have to wait for the utility to address the wires," Blaum said. "I know everyone’s working as quickly as possible to get the roads reopened as quickly as possible."

UPDATE 10:45 p.m.

New Britain Borough Mayor David Holewinski reports that Route 202 is open again through the borough. It had been closed at Tamenend because of a large tree down on wires across the road. Holewinski said a PECO crew and an Asplundh crew worked Thursday to remove the tree and fix the wires.

UPDATE 1 p.m.

Four roads had been reopened by Thursday afternoon, including:

  • Route 1012 (HEADQUARTERS RD) between DURHAM RD and RIVER RD in TINICUM TOWNSHIP
  • Route 1014 (GEIGEL HILL RD) between UPPER TINICUM CHURCH RD and SECOND ST in TINICUM TOWNSHIP
  • Route 2020 (NEW TYBURN RD) between Exit:  SR 2055 - OLD BRISTOL PIKE and ON RAMP FROM SR 2055 (OLD BRISTOL PK) AT NEW TYBURN RD EXIT
  • Route 4007 (PINE RUN RD) between CEDAR WOODS DR and CHAPMAN RD in DOYLESTOWN TOWNSHIP

Additionally, another road had to be closed:

Route 2025 (BRISTOL RD) between LOWER STATE RD in DOYLESTOWN TOWNSHIP and FOLLY RD WARRINGTON TOWNSHIP because of a downed tree entangled in wires.

"The list is very dynamic," Blaum said. "It is changing constantly as work is completed."
