Wolf Administration Announces Work to Begin on Improvement Project to Resurface 12 Miles of State Highway in Bucks County


​King of Prussia, PA – The Wolf Administration announced today that construction is scheduled to begin Monday, August 14, on an improvement project to repair and resurface 12 miles of state highway in Bucks County. Work on the entire project is expected to be completed in mid-November.

“Improving and maintaining our highways is part of our continuing efforts to upgrade the Commonwealth’s infrastructure and support the local economy,” Governor Tom Wolf said. “This latest project in Bucks County will ensure easier, safer and more efficient travel for residents in the surrounding communities.”
Beginning Monday, August 14, from 7:00 PM to 5:00 AM, lane restrictions with flagging are scheduled on Route 263 (York Road) between County Line Road and Tennyson Drive in Warminster Township, for patching, milling and paving. This weeknight operation will continue through Friday, September 15.
Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through this work zone because slowdowns will occur during construction. The contractor's schedule is dependent on the weather.
Additional state highways scheduled for resurfacing under this contract include:
• Route 332 (Jacksonville Road) between County Line Road and Little Neshaminy Creek in Ivyland Borough and Warminster and Northampton townships;
• Bristol Road between Route 232 (2nd Street Pike) and Bristol Road in Upper Southampton, Northampton and Lower Southampton townships;
• Bristol Road between Route 532 (Buck Road) and Bristol Road in Lower Southampton Township; and
• Langhorne-Yardley Road between Stony Hill Road and Route 332 (Yardley-Newtown Road) in Lower Makefield 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, PA, is the general contractor on the $4,403,892 project, which is financed with 100 percent state funds.
