Philly suburbs debut new 8-mile, $200 million parkway



Published: Mon, December 3, 2012 @ 11:45 a.m.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A new eight-mile parkway spanning communities in Philadelphia’s northern suburbs is set to open Monday afternoon.

The $200 million Route 202 parkway is expected to significantly ease congestion in eastern Montgomery and central Bucks counties. A ribbon-cutting is scheduled for 2 p.m.

The Bucks County Courier Times reports the parkway was born as a compromise in 2005 following a divisive proposal for an expressway to improve traffic conditions.

The new parkway includes landscaping, split-rail fences and a walking and biking trail.
