PennDOT has announced that Bristol Road will be closed and detoured on the east side of the intersection with Route 263 (York Road) in Warminster and Warwick townships, Bucks County for six weeks beginning Tuesday, September 20 for intersection reconstruction.
The Bristol Road closure is associated with PennDOT’s $31.6 million project to reconstruct and improve four miles of Route 263 (York Road) between Bristol Road and Sugar Bottom Road in Warwick and Warminster townships. Construction began in March 2014 and is expected to finish in October 2017.
During construction to rebuild the east side of Bristol Road at its approach to Route 263 (York Road), Bristol Road through traffic will be detoured over Route 332 (Jacksonville Road) and Route 132 (Street Road) and Route 263 (York Road). Local access will be maintained up to the construction zone. Eastbound Bristol Road traffic will be able to reach Route 263 (York Road) to travel north or south during construction; however, eastbound travelers will not be able to cross the intersection. Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the area.
The east side of Bristol Road is expected to reopen in early November. Earlier this summer, the contractor rebuilt the west side of Bristol Road at Route 263 (York Road).
PennDOT is rebuilding Route 263 to provide a smoother, safer roadway for motorists for decades to come. The improvements include full depth pavement reconstruction of the existing four-lane concrete road and intersection improvements.
