Aqua Pennsylvania To Close Section Of Bristol Road On Weekdays For Water Main Improvement
PennDOT announced on July 21, 2021, that Aqua PA is planning to replace additional water main on Lilac Lane and portions of state-owned Bristol Road, which will result in weekday closures of both roads. The water main replacement project will begin on Lilac Lane (from Bristol Rd to Hibiscus Dr) on July 26, 2021, with Lilac Lane closed Mondays through Fridays from 7:00 AM to 4:00 PM. When the Lilac Lane section is completed, additional water main replacement will take place on Bristol Rd (from Butler Ave to Forrest Dr) which will result in that section of Bristol Road being closed Mondays through Fridays 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM. For the duration of the project, some Saturday work may be required, there will be access provided for emergency, mail and trash service, and residents will have access to their properties.
Aqua PA has informed the Borough that the upcoming closure of Butler Avenue for its repaving (from Bristol Road to Rt. 152) will not overlap the closure of Bristol Road (from Butler Avenue to Forrest Drive) for its segment of this project. Once the Bristol Road closure starts, it is expected to remain closed on weekdays from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM, and possibly some Saturdays, until November 30, 2021. During the weekday closure of Bristol Road, motorists will be directed to use Butler Avenue, Route 152 (Limekiln Pike), and U.S. 202 (Bypass). Local access will be maintained up to the construction zone. Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling near the work area because backups and delays will occur. All scheduled activities are weather dependent.
