REPORT: Roundabouts Coming To 611 in Doylestown
Theintell.com is reporting that the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) has proposed adding 2 roundabouts to Rt. 611 in Doylestown to help reduce speeding and accidents on the busy Bucks County road.
According to the article on theintell.com, the roundabouts would be located at the intersections of Easton Rd. (611) and New Britain and Sauerman roads. PennDOT says about 7,000 cars per day pass through each of intersections.
The article also says that a PennDOT Traffic Control Specialist acknowledged that "the intersection isn’t one of the most dangerous or deadly in the state, just one with a notable number of vehicle crashes that could benefit the most from installing roundabouts over a traffic light."
Even though PennDOT wants to build the roundabouts, the final decision will be made by Doylestown Township officials. If approved, theintell.com says the roundabouts would be completed by 2023.
According to the Doylestown Township's website, "there are 33 miles of State roads within Doylestown Township," all of which are "maintained by PennDOT."
