After many years of construction, and numerous traffic restrictions for new guardrails, traffic signalization, sound walls and the like, the $200 million U.S. Route 202 Parkway will open to traffic Monday, Dec. 3.
The 8.4-mile Parkway, according to PennDOT, is a direct route from Montgomeryville to Doylestown, beginning at Route 63 near Stump Road and ending at Route 611.
“We look forward to opening Pennsylvania’s newest roadway as the Route 202 Parkway will provide additional transportation capacity and enhance travel along this congested corridor in Montgomery and Bucks counties,” PennDOT District Executive Lester C. Toaso said in a statement.
The Parkway boasts four 11-foot-wide travel lanes (two in each direction), between Route 63/Welsh Road and Route 463 in Montgomery County, and two 11-foot-wide travel lanes (one in each direction) from Route 463 to Route 611.
The limit for the entire Parkway will be 40 mph.
In addition, there are 12-foot-wide shared-use bike and pedestrian paths, with 19 access points along the route.
Five trailhead parking areas will be along the route at the following locations: Knapp Road, Route 309, Stump Road, Bristol Road and New Britain Road.
