PennDOT has announced that construction will begin next week (March 27) on a $3.7 million project to repair and resurface 15 miles of state highway in Bucks County. The entire project is expected to be completed in July.
Beginning Monday, March 27, through Friday, April 21, from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM, periodic lane restrictions with flagging are scheduled weekdays on Route 412 (Durham Road) between Route 611 (Easton Road) and Route 212 in Nockamixon and Springfield townships for milling and paving operations.
Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work zones because slowdowns will occur during construction. The contractor’s schedule is dependent on the weather.
The additional state highways scheduled for resurfacing under this contract include:
- Route 563 (Ridge Road) between County Line Road and Park Avenue in West Rockhill Township and Perkasie Borough.
- Kumry Road between Sleepy Hollow Road and Creamery Road in Milford Township and Trumbauersville 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.
