PennDOT Easton Road Roundabouts Project To Improve Safety In Doylestown Township

PennDOT News, Road Work Updates | September 27th, 2023

PennDOT District 6 will begin construction on Monday, October 9, on a project to improve safety by constructing roundabouts at the intersection of Easton Road and New Britain Road/Sauerman Road in Doylestown Township, Bucks County.

Motorists are advised of the following travel restriction:

Under this safety improvement project, PennDOT will construct two adjacent single-lane roundabouts at the bifurcated intersection of Easton Road and New Britain Road/Sauerman Road. The roundabouts will include new drainage and sidewalks; ADA-compliant crossings; bicycle facilities, lighting, and full-depth pavement reconstruction.

The design will include transit facilities to accommodate SEPTA and DART routes. There are existing trails to the east and west of the project that will be connected as part of this project. The proposed trail connection will circle the roundabouts connecting Triangle Park and the Heritage Gateway Center at Doylestown to adjacent residences and businesses.

The project aims to reduce overall crashes at the intersection; reduce vehicle speeds; and improve bicycle and pedestrian mobility and safety near the intersection.
