PennDOT’s project to repave a portion of the Newtown Bypass is getting closer to completion.
In June, PennDOT began work to repave pothole-ridden portions of the Newtown Bypass between Summit Trace Road and Durham Road in Newtown Township.
A drive this week on the Newtown Bypass showed most of the repaving work is almost finished.
“Under this improvement project, PennDOT is milling the existing roadway surface and repaving the state highways with new asphalt. The new pavement will seal the roadways and provide motorists with a smoother riding surface,” PennDOT said in a statement.
The Newtown Bypass is part of PennDOT’s plan to repave 25 miles of Bucks County state roadways, including a part of Taylorsville Road in Upper Makefield Township.
Blooming Glen Contractors, Inc., of Perkasie, was the general contractor for the countywide repaving effort. The total cost of the work is $9.4 million.
