Single lane closures will be in place periodically on U.S. 1, Street Road (Route 132) and Bristol Road beginning Sunday, Penn DOT announced this week.
The closures, set for February 9, through February 14, from 8:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. are for bridge and roadway construction activities.
The work is part of a project to reconstruct, widen and improve a 1.3-mile section of the highway in Bensalem Township, officials say.
The work locations are:
- Northbound or southbound U.S. 1 between Rockhill Drive and Old Lincoln Highway;
- Eastbound or westbound Street Road (Route 132) between Old Lincoln Highway and Kingston Way; and
- Bristol Road between Belmont Avenue and Old Lincoln Highway. Traffic will be controlled by flagging.
Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work areas because backups and slowdowns will occur. All scheduled activities are weather permitting.
Allan A. Myers, Inc. of Worcester, Montgomery County is the general contractor on the $95.1 million project which is financed with 80 percent federal and 20 percent state funds. The project is expected to complete by late 2022.
This contract (RC1) is the first of three construction contracts to rebuild and widen U.S. 1; replace aging bridges; and install safety enhancements along a four-mile section of the expressway from just north of Philadelphia to just north of Route 413 (Pine Street) in Middletown Township and Langhorne Borough.
