Lurgan Road in Upper Makefield restricted next week for resurfacing

Lane restrictions are scheduled on Lurgan Road between Van Sant Road and Route 32 (River Road) in Upper Makefield Township from Monday, May 6, through Friday, May 10, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., for milling and paving.

Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work area because slowdowns may occur. The contractor’s schedule is dependent on the weather, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) said Thursday. 

Also being resurfaced will be Route 32 (Main Street/River Road) between Route 232 (Windy Bush Road) in New Hope and Ferry Street/Byram Road in Tinicum and Plumstead townships. Work along the the stretch will be done in sections, and a start date has have not yet been determined.

The work is part of a project to repair and resurface 35 miles of state highway in Bucks County. Under the contract, PennDOT is milling the existing roadway surface and repaving the roadways with new asphalt. The new pavement will seal the roadways and provide motorists with a smoother riding surface, PennDOT said.

James D. Morrissey, Inc., of Philadelphia, is the general contractor on the $10.5 million project, which is financed with 100 percent state funds from Act 89, Pennsylvania’s transportation plan.
