Construction is scheduled to begin Monday, July 18 to improve drainage along Stump Road and Danboro-Point Pleasant Pike in Plumstead Township, Bucks County.
PennDOT’s contractor will replace deteriorated drainage pipes and clean drainage ditch lines on each roadway. Several property owners will be required to reimburse the department for the installation or replacement of their driveway drainage pipes. Pennsylvania regulation requires property owners to maintain a minimum of a 15-inch diameter pipe. Construction will be performed under traffic and flaggers will control travel through the work zones.
Crews will work the next two weeks on Danboro-Point Pleasant Pike between Burnt House Hill Road and Old Easton Road. PennDOT’s contractor will work weekdays from 7:00 AM to 3:00 PM.
Once the contractor completes construction on Danboro-Point Pleasant Pike the crews will move to work on Stump Road between Route 611 (Easton Road) and Route 413.
This drainage improvement project is a collaborative effort between PennDOT, Plumstead Township, Bucks County Water and Sewer Authority and the Central Bucks School District.
