The ramp from eastbound and westbound Street Road (Route 132) to northbound U.S. 1 in Bensalem Township, will be closed and detoured beginning sometime after 9:00 AM Monday, January 20, until 5:00 AM Tuesday, January 28, for reconstruction at the interchange, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced last week.
During the ramp closure, eastbound and westbound Street Road (Route 132) motorists will be directed to use Old Lincoln Highway to access northbound U.S. 1.
In addition to the ramp closure, single lane closures will be in place periodically on U.S. 1, Street Road (Route 132), and Bristol Road on Sunday, January 19, through Friday, January 24, from 8:00 PM to 6:00 AM the following morning for bridge and roadway construction activities.
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.
The work is part of a corridor improvement project, and 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.
