New Tyburn Road Expressway

New Tyburn Road comprises a four-lane arterial / expressway between U.S. 1 (Lincoln Highway) at Fallsington and Pennsylvania Avenue south of Morrisville. The east-west road is found in eastern Bucks County south of the U.S. 1 freeway and north of the US Steel Industrial Park. Four interchanges and three at-grade intersections exist along the 3.8-mile long highway.
