PennDOT has announced that a traffic pattern switch on Route 263 (York Road) between Bristol Road and Almshouse Road in Warminster and Warwick townships, Bucks County is scheduled for Thursday, September 15.
This traffic pattern change is associated with PennDOT’s $31.6 million project to reconstruct and improve four miles of Route 263 (York Road) between Bristol Road and Sugar Bottom Road in Warwick and Warminster townships. Construction began in March 2014 and is expected to finish in October 2017.
PennDOT plans to move one travel lane in each direction over to the newly built southbound lanes of Route 263 (York Road). Following the traffic pattern change this week, crews will reconstruct the northbound side of the highway. This pattern will remain in place through spring 2017.
In addition, Bristol Road will be closed and detoured on the east side of the intersection with Route 263 (York Road) in Warminster and Warwick townships, Bucks County, for six weeks, beginning Tuesday, September 20 for intersection reconstruction. Westbound Bristol Road through traffic will be detoured over Route 332 (Jacksonville Road), Route 132 (Street Road) and Route 263 (York Road). Local access will be maintained up to the construction zone.
Motorists traveling east on Bristol Road will be able to reach Route 263 (York Road) to travel north or south during construction; however, eastbound travelers will not be able to cross the intersection. To continue on Bristol Road, eastbound drivers will be detoured onto Route 263 (York Road), Route 132 (Street Road), and Route 332 (Jacksonville Road). Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the area. The east side of Bristol Road is expected to reopen in early November.
