The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced last week that utility construction will continue this week on Hulmeville Avenue under a project to enhance safety and improve travel through the Hulmeville Avenue Intersection in Penndel Borough, in Lower Bucks County.
Motorists are advised of the following travel restrictions:
- Monday, March 27, through Friday, April 7, from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM, a weekday lane closure is scheduled on Hulmeville Avenue between Business U.S. 1 (Lincoln Highway) and Crescent Street; and
- Monday, March 27, through Friday, April 7, from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM, a weekday lane closure is scheduled on Noeland Avenue between Business U.S. 1 (Lincoln Highway) and Crescent Street.
Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work areas because backups and delays will occur. All scheduled activities are weather dependent.
Under this project, PennDOT’s contractor will widen the existing intersection to add exclusive left-turn lanes; mill, pave and stripe the intersection and its approaches; upgrade existing traffic signal equipment; and install new ADA curb ramps at the Business U.S. 1 (Lincoln Highway) intersections at Hulmeville Avenue and Noeland Avenue.
Additional enhancements include replacing the existing sidewalk along the north and south side of Business U.S. 1 (Lincoln Highway) approaching the intersection with Hulmeville Avenue; adjusting the curbing to improve truck turning radius; and upgrading drainage inlets and pipes.
Road-Con, Inc. of West Chester, Chester County, is the general contractor on the $2.2 million project, which is financed with 100% federal funds.
