King of Prussia, PA – Moving lane closures are scheduled weekdays on Steinsburg Road/Cherry Road between Spinnerstown Road and Route 212 (Richlandtown Pike) in Milford and Richland townships, Bucks County, on Wednesday, May 15, through Friday, May 24, from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM, for chip sealing and sweeping operations, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today. The work is part of a project to seal coat 38 miles of state highway in Chester County and 32 miles in Bucks County.
Drivers are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work area because backups and delays may occur. The schedule is weather dependent and subject to change.
Under this seal coat project, PennDOT will preserve and extend the life of these state roadways by applying a layer of fine stone on top of fresh oil. The stone will be rolled in place and loose aggregate swept from the roadway once the seal coating application has cured. This maintenance treatment seals the road surface to keep water out, and prevents formation of potholes. This treatment also improves the skid resistance of the roadway.
Asphalt Maintenance Solutions, LLC of Center Valley, PA is the general contractor on the $1,858,666 project which is financed with 100 percent state funds. Weather permitting, the project is expected to be completed this summer.
