Route description

Philadelphia

PA 532 southbound (Bustleton Avenue) past the intersection with Byberry Road in the Somerton neighborhood of Philadelphia.

PA 532 begins as Welsh Road, where it intersects with Roosevelt Boulevard (U.S. Route 1) in Northeast Philadelphia. After less than a mile, PA 532 leaves Welsh Road and follows Bustleton Avenue. The road follows the path of a former turnpike, named for the former town of Bustleton (now the neighborhood of Bustleton in the city of Philadelphia,) and is an ordinary surface road with two lanes in each direction.

Crossing Red Lion Road (Pennsylvania Route 63), the road enters the Somerton neighborhood of Philadelphia. It is the main street for businesses here, and throughout its passage through Northeast Philadelphia, Bustleton Avenue is densely populated with houses, businesses and apartments. The Somerton train station is nearby, at Philmont Avenue.

Crossing County Line Road, PA 532 enters Bucks County in Lower Southampton township, where the name of the road changes to Bustleton Pike. In Feasterville, PA 532 crosses over the Pennsylvania Turnpike and intersects Street Road (Pennsylvania Route 132). Shortly thereafter, at an intersection, Bustleton Pike continues to the northwest, but PA 532 follows Buck Road to the northeast. As the surroundings grow more suburban, Buck Road enters Northampton township. After intersecting Holland Road and Old Bristol Road, Buck Road continues to the northeast past Council Rock's Holland Middle School and the Village Shires Shopping Center.

PA 532 then crosses the Neshaminy Creek and enters Newtown township. The road does not enter the town of Newtown, but rather diverts onto the Newtown By-Pass, where it is co-signed with Pennsylvania Route 332 and Pennsylvania Route 413. At the end of the bypass, PA 532 emerges on the other side of Newtown as Washington Crossing Road. Passing briefly into Lower Makefield, then into Upper Makefield township, the road continues through the rural countryside, and passes over the Delaware Canal before terminating in Washington Crossing at an intersection with River Road (Pennsylvania Route 32) just before the Washington Crossing Bridge, while the road continues on into New Jersey.
