Work to Affect Doylestown-Area Roads

Lane closures are scheduled for major commuter roads, including the Route 611 bypass, Upper State Road, and Routes 202 and 309.

Periodic lane closures will affect several major area roads in Bucks and Montgomery counties as construction of the Route 202 Parkway continues, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation said.

Drivers on Stump Road in Warrington Township will encounter periodic single lane conditions between County Line Road and Route 152 (Limekiln Pike) on Monday through Friday (Oct. 15-19) from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. for drainage work, milling and paving.

Ongoing construction of sign foundations, overhead sign installations and testing of new traffic signal equipment will result in periodic short-term lane closures Monday through Thursday (Oct. 15-18) 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, which remains closed between Upper State and Stump roads in Warrington Township for construction of a bridge over the Parkway, is expected to reopen Monday, Oct. 22.

Lane closures will occur in Montgomery, Lower Gwynedd and Upper Gwynedd townships on Route 202 (DeKalb Pike) between Swedesford and Knapp roads and on Route 63 (Welsh Road) between Stump and North Wales roads on Monday through Friday (Oct. 15-19) from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Crews will pave, paint lines, install guiderail and complete miscellaneous construction activities on both roads that were widened to four lanes at the connection to the Parkway.

Motorists should anticipate delays and add extra time for travel through the construction areas. All planned activities are contingent on the weather.  

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, with access to key cross streets in between.
