PennDOT To Reopen River Road In Solebury Township

PennDOT News, Road Work Updates | October 7th, 2016

PennDOT says Route 32 (River Road) will reopen to traffic Saturday morning (October 8) in Solebury Township, Bucks County marking the completion of a $3.9 million project to improve travel and safety on the roadway by replacing a 1,300-foot-long deteriorated retaining wall and rebuilding the road in the area of the wall.

PennDOT’s contractor will work through tonight (October 7) and into tomorrow morning to complete final paving, install guiderail and paint traffic lines.

PennDOT restored the structural stability of Route 32 (River Road) between the intersections of Paxson Road and Laurel Road by building a new retaining wall made of concrete panels and steel piles to replace the existing wall, which was severely damaged by several flooding storms.

In addition, crews reconstructed and resurfaced 1,450 feet of Route 32 (River Road); improved drainage by installing 24 new storm inlets and more than 1,200 feet of storm sewers; replaced two existing drain pipes; constructed four storm water outlets; installed curb along the retaining wall; and added new guide rail and traffic signs.
