PennDOT to Replace Stony Hill Road Culvert Over Brock Creek in Lower Makefield
The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced Thursday that construction will begin to replace the Stony Hill Road culvert over Brock Creek in Lower Makefield Township, Bucks County, as part of a project to replace four culverts in Bucks County.
Motorists are advised of the following travel restriction:
- Monday, May 15, through mid-September, Stony Hill Road will be closed and detoured between Judith Place and Oxford Valley Road. During the closure, motorists are directed to use Heacock Road/Oxford Valley Road and Big Oak Road.
Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling near the work area because backups and delays will occur. Local access will be maintained up to the construction zone. The schedule is weather dependent.
Built in 1926, the Stony Hill Road culvert carries an average of 8,055 vehicles per day.
Structures completed in this culvert replacement project include:
- Aquetong Road over a Branch of Aquetong Creek in Solebury Township;
- Deerwood Lane over Kimples Creek in Haycock Township; and
- Cherry Road over Branch of Tohickon Creek in Richland Township.
C. Abbonizio Contractors, Inc. of Sewell, New Jersey, is the general contractor on this $3.8 million culvert replacement project financed with 100 percent state funds.
