Route 309 (Sellersville Bypass) Lane Closures at Night Next Week in Bucks County

Lane restrictions

BUCKS COUNTY, PA — Northbound and southbound Route 309 (Sellersville Bypass) motorists will encounter a lane closure between Route 563 (Ridge Road) and Route 152 (State Road) in West Rockhill Township, Bucks County, on Monday, October 4, through Friday, October 8, from 7:00 PM to 6:00 AM the following morning for barrier placement under a project to rehabilitate the pavement and repair several structures on a 9.1-mile section of the expressway, announced the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT).

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.

As Stage 2 construction advances through winter 2021 and spring 2022, Route 309 (Sellersville Bypass) drivers can expect to encounter periodic off-peak daytime and nighttime lane closures at several locations between Route 563 (Ridge Road) and Route 152 (State Road) for various construction activities.

The improvement plan includes the following:

  • Milling and overlay;
  • Reconstructing shoulders;

  • Rehabilitating eight Route 309 bridges, four overhead bridges and four culverts;
  • Repairing concrete ditches;
  • Installing drainage improvements, new pavement markings and signs; and
