PennDOT To Begin Construction On Langhorne-Yardley Road Intersection Improvement Project In Middletown Township

PennDOT News, Road Work Updates | May 23rd, 2024

PennDOT District 6 says that construction will begin on Tuesday, May 28, on a $10.6 million project to improve traffic congestion and safety on Langhorne-Yardley Road at the Bridgetown Pike and Woodbourne Road intersections in Middletown Township, Bucks County.

Under this contract, PennDOT’s contractor will construct a single-lane roundabout and realign the roadway; install upgraded traffic signals, stormwater management, ADA curb ramps, signage, and lighting; perform resurfacing operations; and improve mobility for pedestrians and bicyclists.

The existing signalized T-intersection at Langhorne-Yardley Road and Bridgetown Pike will be replaced by a single-lane roundabout. The proposed roundabout will help decrease vehicular speeds while improving safety and traffic flow. Motorists will be directed to use a detour route once the roundabout construction begins.

Improvements at the Langhorne-Yardley Road and Woodbourne Road Intersection include realigning the northern leg of Woodbourne Road and constructing auxiliary turn lanes on all four approaches. In addition, the eastern leg of Woodbourne Road will be widened to allow for a left turn lane on Langhorne-Yardley Road approaching Erica Drive.

Other enhancements on Langhorne-Yardley Road at the intersection approaches between Bridgetown Pike and Woodbourne Road include minor vertical realignment to improve sight distance and widening of lanes and shoulders.

In addition, features to improve pedestrian and bicyclist mobility include the following:

  • Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacons (RRFBs) installed at the following existing pedestrian crossings: Langhorne-Yardley Road just east of the Briggs Road Intersection; and on Woodbourne Road at the Core Creek Park and Maple Point Middle School crossings.
  • Five-foot-wide paved shoulders.
  • New paved paths along Bridgetown Pike and Woodbourne Road to connect these intersections to the Core Creek Park driveways.
  • Pedestrian accommodations at the roundabout and signalized intersection.
  • Sidewalks constructed along the southern side of Langhorne-Yardley Road between Woodbourne Road and Briggs Road.

Beginning, Tuesday, May 28, through late August, motorists are advised of periodic lane closures that are scheduled weekdays in both directions on Langhorne-Yardley Road between Bridgetown Pike and Woodbourne for utility and clearing work.

Drivers are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work area because backups and delays will occur. All scheduled activities are weather dependent.
