Weekday lane restrictions with flagging are scheduled on Richlandtown Road/Union Road/Main Street, between the Tohickon Creek and Towne Court Drive in East Rockhill, Haycock and Richland townships, and Richlandtown Borough, on Wednesday, May 10, through Wednesday, May 31, from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM, for milling and paving as part of a $2.6 million project to repair and resurface 12 miles of state highway in Bucks County, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today. Work on the project is expected to be completed in late October.
Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through this area. The work schedule is dependent on the weather.
The additional state highways scheduled for resurfacing under this contract include:
- Route 32 (River Road) between Dark Hollow Road and the Delaware Canal in Tinicum and Bridgeton townships; and
- Burnt House Hill Road between Cold Spring Creamery Road and U.S. 202 in Buckingham Township.
Under this improvement project, PennDOT will mill 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.
Blooming Glen Contractors, Inc., of Blooming Glen, Bucks County, is the general contractor on the $2,616,692 project, which is financed with 100 percent state funds from Act 89, Pennsylvania’s Transportation Plan.
