A portion of Swamp Road in Wrightstown will be getting a new high-friction surface next week.

According to PennDOT officials, Swamp Road between Sacketts Ford Road and Apple Hill Road will be receiving a high-friction resurfacing Monday through Saturday. Lane restrictions can be expected between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Monday, July 31 through Friday, August 4 and from 7 a.m. until 5 p.m. on Saturday, August 5.

The resurfacing will add a layer of aggregate to provide increased friction and grip on pavement in various weather conditions.

Swamp Road is receiving the surface along with 24 other state highways in Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery and Philadelphia counties. The work is part of a $4.8 million project being taken on by J.D. Eckman Inc. and paid for through 80 percent federal and 20 percent state funds, PennDOT officials said.
