Construction Alert: Hulmeville Avenue Upgrades Underway

Travel Restrictions

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced that construction activities will continue next week on Hulmeville Avenue under a project to enhance safety and improve travel through the Hulmeville Avenue and Business U.S. 1 (Lincoln Highway) Intersection in Penndel Borough, Bucks County.

The work schedule and location are:

  • Monday, May 22, through Friday, May 26, from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM, a lane closure is scheduled on Hulmeville Avenue between Business U.S. 1 (Lincoln Highway) and Crescent Street.

Motorists are being advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work area 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 percent federal funds.
