Motorists Should Avoid Eastbound Rockhill Drive Next Week

lane restrictions

BENSALEM, PA — Eastbound Rockhill Drive will be reduced to a single lane between Old Lincoln Highway and Neshaminy Boulevard on Monday, July 25, through Thursday, July 28, from 8:00 PM to 6:00 AM the following morning for overhead bridge construction on U.S. 1 in Bensalem Township, Bucks County, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced.

In addition, periodic lane restrictions also may be in place Monday, July 25, through Thursday, July 28, from 8:00 PM to 6:00 AM the following morning for paving on northbound and southbound U.S. 1 between Old Lincoln Highway and the Pennsylvania Turnpike interchange and on eastbound and/or westbound Street Road (Route 132) between Old Lincoln Highway and Kingston Way in Bensalem Township.

Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work areas. All scheduled activities are weather dependent.

PennDOT is reconstructing and widening almost three miles of U.S. 1, improving the interchanges, and constructing several new bridges — including new structures over the Neshaminy Creek and over rail lines near the Penndel exit— under two contracts (RC1, RC2) to rebuild, widen and improve U.S.1 in Bucks County.
