Ramp Construction Planned Thursday Night on U.S. 1 in Bensalem
The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation announced Tuesday that ramp construction is scheduled this week on U.S. 1 under a 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 that will be in place:
- Thursday, May 11, from 8:00 PM to 6:00 AM the following morning, northbound U.S. 1 will be reduced to a single lane between the Neshaminy and Penndel/Business U.S 1 exits for setting a new traffic pattern at the ramp to Penndel/Business U.S. 1.
The new pattern will shift off-ramp traffic onto a temporary ramp while the new permanent ramp is built.
Drivers are advised to allow extra time when traveling through or near the work areas. All scheduled activities are weather dependent.
PennDOT is reconstructing and widening U.S. 1, improving the interchanges, and constructing new bridges from the Turnpike Interchange in Bensalem Township to north of the Penndel/Business U.S. 1 in Middletown Township under the $113.5 million Section RC2 contract.
