U.S. 1 Continuous Lane Closures Next Weekend for Construction in Lower Bucks
Travel restrictions are planned next weekend on U.S. 1 and Old Lincoln Highway in Middletown township, Bucks County, for bridge beam erection, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced last week.
The work schedule and locations are:
- A continuous single lane pattern will be in place on northbound U.S. 1 between the Penndel/Business U.S. 1 and Route 413 exits from 1:00 AM Saturday, June 25, to 5:00 AM Monday, June 27; and
- Intermittent traffic stoppages will take place on southbound Old Lincoln Highway between Bristol Road and Hulmeville Road from 1:00 AM Saturday, June 25, to 5:00 AM Monday, June 27.
Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work areas. All scheduled activities are weather dependent.
Crews are 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 two contracts (RC1, RC2) to rebuild, widen and improve U.S. 1 in Bucks County.
