Middletown Township has been working for several years with PennDOT to bring major improvements to Langhorne-Yardley Road. The project will include improvements at the Langhorne-Yardley Road intersections with Bridgetown Pike and Woodbourne Road, spanning the southern boundary of Core Creek Park. The plan overview can be viewed here.
A public presentation was made on this project on July 20, 2020, which can be viewed here
BRIDGETOWN PIKE INTERSECTION
At the Bridgetown Pike intersection with Langhorne-Yardley Road, a traffic circle is proposed in place of the existing "Y" shaped signalized intersection. Traffic circles naturally calm traffic by reducing speeds while maintaining consistent flow from all directions and during peak and non-peak traffic times. This plan includes significant pedestrian improvements, including a planned connection to the Bridgetown Pike entrance to Core Creek Park. The plans to improve this intersection can be viewed here.
WOODBOURNE ROAD INTERSECTION
At the Woodbourne Road intersection, Woodbourne Road will be reoriented to create a
wider, realigned approach on the north side of the intersection. The Woodbourne Road and Langhorne-Yardley Road intersection will also have dedicated left-turn lanes on all four sides. This plan includes improvements for pedestrian access and crossing. The plans to improve this intersection can be viewed here.
These improvements are made possible with township, county, state, and federal funds. More than a dozen agencies in all levels of government have been involved to bring this project to fruition. Middletown Township's involvement has accelerated the project timeline by several years. The estimated completion date for these
improvements is in 2024. Traffic Planning & Design, the Township's traffic engineer, is completing the
work for the Township.
