Bridge, Roadway Construction Planned Next Week on U.S. 1 in Bensalem Township

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced Thursday that bridge and roadway construction will continue next week on U.S. 1 between the Pennsylvania Turnpike and Penndel/Business U.S. 1 interchanges under a project to reconstruct, widen and improve a 1.3-mile section of U.S. 1 in Bensalem and Middletown townships, Bucks County.

Motorists are advised of the following travel restriction:

  • Monday, January 16, from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM, northbound U.S.1 will be reduced to a single lane between the Turnpike and Route 413 exits for pavement core sampling.

Drivers are advised to allow extra time when traveling through or near the work area. All scheduled activities are weather dependent.

PennDOT is reconstructing and widening U.S. 1, improving the interchanges, and constructing new bridges over the Neshaminy Creek, Rockhill Drive, and over rail lines near the Penndel/Business U.S. 1 exit under the $113.3 million Section RC2 contract.

JD Eckman, Inc., of Atglen, PA is the general contractor on the project, which is scheduled to be completed in mid-2026.

Section RC1 improvements between Old Lincoln Highway and the Pennsylvania Turnpike in Bensalem Township were completed in December 2022. Section RC3, which will improve the U.S.1 corridor between Penndel/Business U.S. 1 and Corn Crib Lane (north of Route 413), is currently in preliminary engineering with construction bids tentatively expected to be opened in late 2026.
