New traffic pattern planned on Rockhill Drive in Bensalem


The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) said a new traffic pattern will be established on Rockhill Drive Thursday, under a $116 million project to reconstruct, widen, and improve a three-mile section of U.S. 1 in Bensalem and Middletown townships.

Motorists are advised of the following travel restriction:

Thursday, April 18, from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m., a single lane pattern with 15-minute traffic stoppages is planned in both directions on Rockhill Drive between Horizon and Mall boulevards.

The lane closures and stoppages are for setting up a new traffic pattern for continued construction on Rockhill Drive.

Drivers are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work area because backups and delays may occur. All scheduled activities are weather dependent and subject to change.
