Lighting Installation Planned Next Week at Old Bethlehem Pike/Portzer Road Roundabout in Milford, Richland Townships

King of Prussia, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today that light pole installation will occur next week on Old Bethlehem Pike at Portzer Road in Milford and Richland townships, Bucks County, where a new roundabout was constructed and opened in November 2023.

Motorists are advised of the following travel restriction:

  • Monday, February 19, through Friday, February 23, from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM, a periodic lane closure with flagging is scheduled through the Old Bethlehem Pike and Portzer Road roundabout.

Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work area because backups and delays may occur. All scheduled activities are weather dependent.

Under this $1.9 million project, PennDOT’s contractor reconfigured the existing intersection into a single-lane roundabout to improve traffic flow and reduce the number of angle crashes. The new roadway lane widens at the roundabout entry points and transitions to an 18-foot-wide circulatory width.

Other improvements included constructing a five-foot-wide sidewalk on the east side of the roundabout, and a bituminous multi-use eight-foot-wide trail to connect the St. Isidore’s Trail and the Blackledge Estates Trail on the west side of Portzer Road to enhance pedestrian and bicyclist mobility. 

Grace Industries, Inc. of Bath, PA is the general contractor on this improvement project, which is financed with 100% state funds.

Motorists can check conditions on more than 40,000 roadway miles, including color-coded winter conditions, by visiting 511PA, which is free and available 24 hours a day, provides traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts, traffic speed information and access to more than 1,000 traffic cameras.
