The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced that construction is scheduled to begin Monday (Aug. 4) on a $4.4 million project to repair and resurface over 15 miles of County Line Road between Route 611 (Easton Road) and Route 532 (Bustleton Avenue) in Lower Southampton, Upper Southampton, Warminster, and Warrington townships, Bucks County, and Hatboro Borough, Lower Moreland, Upper Moreland and Horsham townships, Montgomery County.
Crews will begin work Monday (Aug. 4) to mill, patch and resurface County Line between Route 611 (Easton Road) and Route 263 (York Road) weeknights from 7 p.m. to 5 a.m.
During construction, County Line Road will be reduced to one lane in each direction weeknights. Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the construction area.
“County Line Road along with many other highways in the region suffered extensive pavement damage during the past winter season and it is one of the many state roads that we are repairing this year,” PennDOT District 6 Executive Les Toaso said.
James D. Morrissey, Inc. of Philadelphia is the general contractor on the $4,395,135 project that is financed with 100 percent state funds. The resurfacing is expected to be completed by the end of October.
