Drivers will encounter periodic lane closures in Bucks and Montgomery counties this week for Route 202 Parkway construction, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation said.
The 8.4 mile, state-funded Parkway is scheduled to open later this fall between Montgomeryville and Doylestown.
Periodic lane closures in Montgomery, Lower Gwynedd and Upper Gwynedd townships will slow travel on Route 202 (DeKalb Pike) between Swedesford and Knapp roads and Route 63 (Welsh Road) between Stump and North Wales roads on Monday through Friday (Oct. 8-12) from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Crews will pave, paint lines and complete miscellaneous construction activities on both roads that were widened to four lanes at its connection with the Parkway.
Operations to build sign foundations, install overhead signs and test new traffic signal equipment will result in short-term lane closures Monday through Thursday (Oct. 8-12) from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on:
• 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 remains closed between Upper State and Stump roads in New Britain and Warrington townships for construction of the bridge over the Parkway.
Motorists should anticipate delays and add extra time for travel through the construction areas. All planned activities are contingent on the weather.
