Lower State Road and Route 152 (Limekiln Pike) are scheduled to close at their respective intersections with County Line Road in Warrington Township, Bucks County from 9:00 AM Thursday, September 14, through 9:00 AM Sunday, September 17, for excavation, utility work and paving.
PennDOT says this is part of a major improvement project to reconstruct, widen and improve 1.4 miles of County Line Road between Stump Road and Kulp Road in Warrington Township, Bucks County and Horsham and Montgomery townships, Montgomery County.
During construction, motorists looking to access Lower State Road and Route 152 (Limekiln Pike) will be detoured over County Line Road, U.S. 202 and Bristol Road. Local access will be maintained up to the construction zone.
Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through this area because slowdowns will occur during construction. The work schedule is dependent on the weather.
PennDOT’s contractor is widening County Line Road to accommodate two 11-foot travel lanes in each direction, an 11-foot center turn lane, and two five-foot shoulders. This widened stretch of County Line Road will tie into the recently widened section at Stump Road, and will taper back to two lanes near Kulp Road.
Additional improvements include the installation of four sound walls on County Line Road in the vicinity of the intersections at Kingston Way, Kenas Road, Kulp Road and Route 152 (Limekiln Pike).
James D. Morrissey, Inc. of Philadelphia is the general contractor on the $14,793,565 contract that is financed with 80 percent federal and 20 percent state funds. Construction on the entire project is expected to be completed in September 2018.
