Weekday lane restrictions on U.S. 202 in New Hope for “road widening” continued Monday, although the work is actually centered around the construction of a four-way intersection with a traffic light and at least one new ramp leading to the Rabbit Creek Run residential development.
The new intersection “will allow people to access 202 and River Road from all directions,” confirmed Keith Boyd, principal of Barley Homes LLC, a contractor for Scannapieco Development Corp. “There will also be a very decorative traffic light system similar to the one at Bridge and Main streets at all four corners.”
New Hope-based Scannapieco Development Corporation broke ground on Rabbit Run Creek April 18, and the project will ultimately encompass 37 “ultra-luxury townhomes.”
Although quoted on the borough’s web page, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) said they had little to do with the project, and that the lane restrictions on U.S. 202 between Sugan Road and Route 32 are due to “road construction by New Hope Borough and Scannapieco Development Corporation.”
Fortunately for taxpayers, “All of these improvements will be paid for by Scannapieco Development Corp.,” according to Boyd.
A spokesperson for New Hope Borough was not immediately available.
Lane restrictions on U.S. 202 for “road widening” are scheduled to continue until June 3, according to the New Hope Borough website.
