The Route 202 Parkway is a new road with a separate 12-foot-wide paved trail that greatly enhances travel between Montgomeryville and Doylestown. It replaces the existing Route 202 alignment which has experienced congestion for decades. The project extends over eight-plus miles in Bucks County and Montgomery County. This $200 million state-funded project is maintained by PennDOT. The Parkway project is unique in that it includes the trail, extensive split rail fencing, landscaping, park and ride lots and other aesthetic elements. It contains limited access to the roadway with a few overpasses, though most intersections along it will have signals at grade crossings. The alignment of the road was established to provide aesthetic vistas and minimize impact to the local communities and natural environment. Montgomery County supported the project with staff of the planning commission, particularly Leo Bagley, was involved in the various aspects of the design of the road and trail system. The roadway alignment is depicted in the county comprehensive plan. The 202 trail is also considered part of the county trail system endorsed by the comprehensive plan, though the county has no maintenance or monitoring responsibilities for it.
