Click here for a map of the current work area on Park Avenue. Full paving restoration work will not begin on Park Avenue for a couple of months.

Click here for a map of the current anticipated work area and detour for work on Ferry Road. Work will continue to progress along Ferry Road. Milling and paving overlay of Ferry Road will commence starting on 9-12-23 and working from Swamp Road toward Park Avenue. This operation will take approximately two weeks as each day the contractor will need to completely close portions of the road in both directions as they mill and repave the one lane of Ferry Road on the New Britain side.   Hours of this operation will be between 9 am and 3 pm daily.

Weeks of September 11 and 18 – Current Active Work Area: The contractor will be milling and re-paving the southbound lane of Ferry Road starting at Swamp Road and headed in a southern direction toward Park Avenue.   The entire roadway in both directions will be severely restricted as both lanes of traffic will be required to complete this restoration operation

OVERVIEW: The Park Avenue–Ferry Road Transmission Main Project is a joint effort between the North Wales Water Authority and North Penn Water Authority. Over five miles of 16-inch water main will be installed to ensure safe and clean water for use in Plumstead Township, as well as to parts of Doylestown and New Britain Townships. The project begins at the Forest Park Water Plant, continues along Park Avenue to Ferry Road, and extends to Route 313 (Swamp Road) in Plumstead Township.  Upon completion of the project, a reliable water supply will be available for firefighting purposes, municipal use, drought, when needed due to failed or contaminated wells, or when any similar situation demands an alternate supply. The North Wales Water Authority (NWWA) will supervise the construction activities.

DETOURS: As required by law, since all of the impacted roads are PennDOT state roads, the detour plans must direct all through traffic only to alternate PennDOT roads. The contractor will be posting the official detour route signage as part of the project start-up. Any decisions regarding local detours are under the sole authority of the local municipality. In general, the construction activities will have a linear movement with immediate area of construction (between intersections) to be CLOSED during active construction. The contractor is required to permit emergency vehicles, school buses, and local residents access at all times during construction.

UPDATES: To keep all interested parties informed of construction progress and changes in circumstances, we will provide regularly updated information on this page. Bookmark this page for your convenience. This will be your best and most reliable source of information. Information such as emergency call numbers, a progress schedule, a map for the upcoming week, and other important information will be available. The estimated completion date for this project is 200 construction days, ending in early December 2023.

SAFETY: For your personal safety and that of the construction workers and inspectors, we respectfully ask that you avoid unnecessary travel along the route during active construction periods. If travel to your destination point during this period is unavoidable, PLEASE be especially careful.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH: For your anticipated patience, understanding, care, and cooperation during this much-needed public improvement.
