PennDOT has announced that construction is scheduled to begin on a $2.6 million project to repair and resurface 12 miles of state highway in Bucks County. All work on the project is expected to be completed in late October.
Beginning Monday, May 1, from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM, Burnt House Hill Road will be closed weekdays between U.S. 202 and Cold Spring Creamery Road in Buckingham Township for milling and paving. The weekday closure will be in effect through the end of May.
During construction, Burnt House Hill Road motorists will be detoured over Cold Spring Creamery Road, Route 313 (Swamp Road) and U.S. 202.
Local access will be maintained up to the construction zone. Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through this area. The work schedule is dependent on the weather.
The additional state highways scheduled for resurfacing under this contract include:
- Route 32 (River Road) from Dark Hollow Road to west of Bridgeton Hill Road in Tinicum and Bridgeton.
- Richlandtown Road/Union Road/Main Street between the Tohickon Creek and Towne Court Drive in East Rockhill, Haycock and Richland townships and Richlandtown Borough.
Under this improvement project, PennDOT will mill off 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.
