PennDOT and PA Governor Tom Wolf announced that construction is scheduled to begin to resurface 10 miles of state highway in Bucks County. Work on the project is expected to be completed in late October.
On Monday, June 12, through Friday, June 16, from 7:00 PM to 5:00 AM, lane restrictions are scheduled on Gibson Road/Bristol Road between Bensalem Boulevard and Overland Road in Bensalem Township for milling and paving.
Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through this work zone because slowdowns will occur during construction. The contractor’s schedule is dependent on the weather.
The additional state highways scheduled for resurfacing under this contract include:
- Route 532 (Buck Road) between Jay Street/Route 213 (Bridgetown Pike) and Rocksville Road in Lower Southampton and Northampton townships.
- Marienstein Road/Bridgeton Hill Road between Route 611 (Easton Road) and Route 32 (River Road) in Nockamixon and Bridgeton townships.
- Oxford Valley Road/Reading Avenue between Edgewood Road and Main Street in Lower Makefield Township and Yardley Borough.
Under this improvement project, PennDOT will mill the existing roadway surface and repave the state highways with new asphalt. The new pavement will seal the roadways and provide motorists with a smoother riding surface.
