County Line Road Improvement Project
On Tuesday, September 19, PennDOT reopened westbound County Line Road as the project heads towards a fall 2023 completion date, more than two years ahead of schedule. PennDOT's contractor reopened westbound County Line Road between Fairmount Avenue and Kulp Road East to allow eastbound traffic to be shifted onto the newly constructed eastbound lanes in that section to complete Stage 2 construction.
This improvement project began in March 2021, and was originally scheduled to finish in 2026; however, the implementation of an accelerated timeframe for bridge replacement, and the combination of construction stages, helped reduce the construction schedule by more than two years. The project is currently scheduled to be completed this fall following final paving, line striping and other construction activities that will require off-peak travel restrictions.

PennDOT is restoring, reconstructing and resurfacing three miles of County Line Road between Kulp Road and Route 611 (Easton Road) in Horsham Township, Montgomery County, and Warrington Township, Bucks County.
Under this contract, PennDOT’s contractor will make the following improvements:
- Widening County Line Road to provide a uniformed pattern of two 11-foot travel lanes and five-foot shoulders;
- Replacing the County Line Road bridge over an unnamed tributary to Little Neshaminy Creek;
- Upgrading traffic signals;
- Installing new guiderail;
- Performing drainage improvements;
- Installing ADA curb ramps; and
- Performing other miscellaneous operations to enhance safety and travel for the motoring public.
The purpose of this corridor improvement project is to address inconsistencies along the corridor, such as varying lane and shoulder widths, areas with poor sight distance, sporadic turn lanes, and areas of poor pavement in order to provide motorists with a roadway designed to modern travel and safety standards.
