Weeknight Lane Restrictions Scheduled on Route 263 (York Road) for Resurfacing Operations in Bucks County

King of Prussia, PA – Weeknight lane restrictions with flagging are scheduled on Route 263 (York Road) between County Line Road and Tennyson Drive in Warminster Township, Bucks County, on Monday, October 16, through Tuesday, October 31, from 7:00 PM to 5:00 AM, for milling and paving operations as part of an improvement project to repair and resurface 12 miles of state highway in Bucks County, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today.

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 highway currently being resurfaced under this contract include:

• Route 332 (Jacksonville Road) between County Line Road and Little Neshaminy Creek in Ivyland Borough and Warminster and Northampton townships.

Additional state highways scheduled for resurfacing under this contract include:

• 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 is milling the existing roadway surface and repaving the state highways with new asphalt. The new pavement will seal the roadways and provide motorists with a smoother riding surface.

Work on the entire project is expected to be completed in mid-November.

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.
