Route 309 (Sellersville Bypass) Lane Closures Next Week
King of Prussia, PA – Route 309 (Sellersville Bypass) motorists will encounter a daytime lane closure in both directions and a nighttime northbound lane closure between Unionville Pike and Reliance Road in Hatfield Township, Montgomery County and Hilltown Township, Bucks County on Monday, January 6, through Friday, January 10, from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM and 7:00 PM to 6:00 AM the following morning for lane shifts, barrier removal and other construction activities under a $53.5 million project to rehabilitate the pavement and repair several structures on a 9.1-mile section of the expressway, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today.
Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work areas because backups and delays will occur. All scheduled activities are weather dependent.
Under this project, PennDOT’s contractor will reconstruct and rehabilitate the Route 309 corridor (Sellersville Bypass) from Unionville Pike in Hatfield Township, Montgomery County, to just north of Rich Hill Road in Richland Township, Bucks County. The improvement plan includes the following:
- Milling and overlay;
- Reconstructing shoulders;
- Installing new guide rail and median barrier;
- Replacing two bridge superstructures;
- Rehabilitating eight Route 309 bridges, four overhead bridges and four culverts;
- Repairing concrete ditches;
- Installing drainage improvements, new pavement markings and signs; and
- Integrating Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS).
James D. Morrissey, Inc. of Philadelphia is the general contractor on the project which is financed with 80 percent federal and 20 percent state funds. Physical construction on the project is expected to finish in summer 2023.
