PennDOT District 6 says that construction is scheduled to begin on Monday, March 22 on a project to improve travel and safety on Route 232 (Second Street Pike) at the Swamp Road Intersection in Wrightstown Township, Bucks County.
Beginning Monday, March 22, motorists can expect an alternating lane closure weekdays from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM on Route 232 (Second Street Pike) at the Swamp Road Intersection through fall 2021.
PennDOT’s contractor will improve the intersection by adding left turn lanes at each approach to allow for better traffic flow and sight distance. An additional lane will be added on northbound Route 232 (Second Street Pike) beginning 100 feet south of the intersection and continuing 800 feet north of the intersection to help accommodate slow-moving truck traffic.
This improvement project will also address storm water management through a specially designed wetland that utilizes native plants, requires less excavation, and is more aesthetically pleasing. This special feature will improve water runoff for the surrounding environment and Neshaminy Creek.
Drivers are advised to allow extra time when traveling near the work area because backups and slowdowns may occur. All scheduled activities are weather dependent.
