BUCKS COUNTY, PA — The Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission announced that bridge construction will begin on Newportville Road in Bristol and Bensalem townships starting Tuesday, July 9.

From July 9 through July 17, Newportville Road will be closed 24/7 between Zimmerman Lane and New Falls Road. During this period, traffic will be rerouted via Zimmerman Lane and New Falls Road. Local access to residences and businesses will be maintained up to the work zone.

Drivers are encouraged to plan for delays and allow extra time when traveling near the construction area, as traffic backups and slowdowns may occur. All scheduled activities are weather dependent.

This project is part of ongoing efforts to improve infrastructure and ensure the safety and efficiency of travel in the region. The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) advises motorists to stay informed about any changes to the schedule due to weather conditions.
