PennDOT has announced that Green Lane will be reconstructed and closed on the east side of U.S. 13 in Bristol Township, Bucks County from 8:30 p.m. Friday, June 3 to 5:00 p.m. Sunday, June 5 for intersection reconstruction.
During this weekend operation, motorists traveling north on U.S. 13 will be prohibited from turning right onto Green Lane and southbound U.S. 13 drivers will not be allowed to turn left onto Green Lane. Motorists traveling west on Green Lane will need to follow the posted detour to access U.S. 13. Drivers traveling east on Green Lane will have access to northbound and southbound U.S 13, but will not be allowed to cross the intersection and continue on Green Lane.
During construction, northbound U.S 13 motorists will be detoured over Fallsington Road, Main Street, and Radcliffe Street to reach Green Lane. Southbound U.S. 13 vehicles will follow Bath Street, Mill Street, and Radcliffe Street.
Eastbound Green Lane motorists wanting to continue east on Green Lane will follow U.S 13 north, Fallsington Road, Main Street, and Radcliffe Street.
Westbound Green Lane motorists will be detoured over Radcliffe Street, Main Street, Fallsington Road, Bristol Pike, Mill Creek Road, and Levittown Parkway to U.S. 13
This intersection improvement is part of PennDOT’s $36.5 million project to enhance travel and safety along a 4.3-mile stretch of U.S. 3 (Bristol Pike) between Route 413 and the Pennsylvania Turnpike. PennDOT*s contractor is rehabilitating the deteriorated pavement; rebuilding bridges; replacing drainage facilities that date back to the 1940s; building sidewalks for pedestrians; installing medians; removing jug handles; reducing travel speeds; and implementing traffic calming measures.
The project is expected to finish in October 2016.
