Contracted crews working for PennDOT began a project on Monday to mill, repair, and repave a portion of Taylorsville Road in Upper Makefield Township.

Flaggers were along Taylorsville Road and preparations for milling the existing road surface were underway as of 8:30 a.m.

PennDOT said a lane closure is scheduled on Taylorsville Road between Taylorsville Road over Dyers Creek and River Road (Route 32) in Lower Makefield and Upper Makefield townships from Monday through early September. The work will take place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day.

Parts of the roadway were damaged in the July 15 flash flooding that killed seven people.

PennDOT has been working since mid-July to repair parts of the Taylorsville Road due to the storm damage.

Drivers are advised to allow extra time for those who need to travel through the work zone.

The work is dependent on the weather.

PennDOT officials said the Taylorsville Road work is part of several repaving projects in Philadelphia, Bucks, Chester, Delaware, and Montgomery counties. The work is covered by multiple contracts worth an estimated $134 million.
