The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation closed Fleecy Dale Road between Fretz Mill Road and Route 32 (River Road) in Solebury Township, Bucks County, for the construction of a new 300-foot retaining wall to stabilize and support the roadway.
In conjunction with this closure, PennDOT today reopened Fleecy Dale Road between Fretz Mill Road and Old Carversville Road, where crews worked since last December to rebuild a retaining wall that was failing.
Following the traffic pattern change, PennDOT’s contractor will build a new retaining wall to replace a failing wall located west of the Fretz Mill Road intersection. This section of Fleecy Dale Road is expected to reopen in May 2014.
A posted detour will take motorists over Fretz Mill Road and Route 32 (River Road). Local access will be maintained up to the closure points. Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the area.
The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) will start a $1.7 million project on Monday, Dec. 10 to build new retaining walls to stabilize and support Fleecy Dale Road in Solebury Township, Bucks County. The project is scheduled to finish in October 2013.
Crews will work until early next fall to build a new retaining wall to replace a failing wall east of the intersection with Fretz Mill Road and to add an additional retaining wall west of Fretz Mill Road.
Fleecy Daley Road will be closed and detoured between Fretz Mill Road and Old Carversville Road starting Dec. 10. A posted detour will take through traffic over Route 32 (River Road), Green Hill Road, Mechanicsville Road and Aquetong Road. Local access will be maintained up to the closure point. Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the area.
