Plans to spruce up a stretch of Route 309 are in the works, and should be completed by early 2018.
PennDOT plans to mill and overlay nine miles of roadway on the the Sellersville Bypass.
The project will start at Unionville Pike in Hatfield Township, Montgomery County and extend to Rich Hill Road in Richland Township, Bucks County.
They will also upgrade the guardrails, drainage and signage there as well as make minor bridge repair to 15 bridge structures.
The design is expected to be completed by early 2018 and is preliminarily estimated to cost $35 million.
Once the project is started, it's expected to be a two year construction cycle.
PennDOT notes that this is a rehab project, not a highway widening project.
Public input on final plan has been welcomed through two meetings so far. There are two more meetings scheduled, August 20 with West Rockhill Township and September 24 with Hatfield Township.
