DOYLESTOWN TOWNSHIP, PA — Construction is expected to begin on Monday, October 9, on a Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) project to improve safety by constructing roundabouts at the intersection of Easton Road and New Britain Road/Sauerman Road in Doylestown Township, Bucks County.

Om Monday, October 9, through Tuesday, April 7, 2026, from 7:00 AM to 3:00 PM, a weekday lane closure is scheduled on Easton Road at the intersection with New Britain Road/Sauerman Road.

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.

PennDOT will construct two single-lane roundabouts at the intersection of Easton Road and New Britain Road/Sauerman Road as part of a safety improvement project. The roundabouts will bring improved drainage, sidewalks, ADA-compliant crossings, and bicycle facilities. Additionally, transit facilities will be included to accommodate SEPTA and DART routes. With the goal of reducing crashes, improving pedestrian and bicycle safety, and enhancing overall mobility, this project will also connect existing trails in the area.
