The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today that core boring operations will take place next week on U.S. 1 and Route 413 (Pine Street) as part of advance engineering activities for upcoming improvements to U.S. 1 in Middletown Township and Langhorne and Langhorne Manor boroughs, in Lower Bucks
Motorists are advised of the following travel restrictions:
- Monday, December 5, through Thursday, December 8, from 8:00 PM to 6:00 AM the following morning, alternating lane closures will be in place in both directions on U.S. 1 between Old Lincoln Highway and Parkvale Avenue; and

Drivers are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work areas. All scheduled activities are weather dependent.
The core borings are being done under the third phase (Section RC3) of the U.S. 1 Improvement Program to reconstruct the highway between Penndel/Business U.S. 1 and Corn Crib Lane. Section RC3 is currently in preliminary engineering with construction bids tentatively expected to open in late 2026.
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 the first two contracts (RC1, RC2) to rebuild, widen and improve U.S. 1 in Bucks County.
