Lane Restrictions Begin Next Week on U.S 1 and Street Road

Daytime and overnight lane restrictions will be in place next week on U.S. 1, Street Road (Route 132) and the Pennsylvania Turnpike in Bensalem,  for bridge, roadway, and utility construction, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation announced. 

The work is part of  a project to widen and improve U.S.1 and reconstruct the interchange at Street Road (Route 132) Crews currently are reconstructing the middle section along 1.3 miles of U.S. 1, the westbound side of Street Road (Route 132) and the westbound Street Road (Route 132) ramps to and from northbound U.S. 1 under the second major stage of the project. 

Normal highway and bridge construction projects in Pennsylvania remain paused as part of the commonwealth’s efforts to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. This project is part of critical work that continues statewide addressing safety needs and work needed to eliminate roadway restrictions that could impede the ability for the movement of life sustaining goods and services. 

The work schedule is:

  • Monday, April 13, through Friday, April 17, from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM, westbound Street Road (Route 132) will be reduced to one lane between Old Lincoln Highway and Kingston Way for water line installation;
  • Monday, April 13, through Friday, April 17, from 5:00 PM to 5:00 AM the following morning, single lane closures will be in place on the eastbound Pennsylvania Turnpike at the U.S.1 overpass for overhead bridge construction;
  • Monday, April 13, through Friday, April 17, from 6:00 PM to 6:00 AM the following morning, single lane closures will be in place on the westbound Pennsylvania Turnpike at the U.S.1 overpass for overhead bridge construction;
  • Monday, April 13, through Friday, April 17, from 8:00 PM to 6:00 AM the following morning, periodic single lane closures will be in place on northbound or southbound U.S. 1 between Rockhill Drive and Old Lincoln Highway for roadway and bridge construction; and
