U.S. 1 Lane Closure at Night Next Week for Construction in Lower Bucks
U.S. 1 will be reduced to one lane in each direction between the Street Road (Route 132) and Route 413 interchanges in Bensalem and Middletown townships from Monday, March 21, through Friday, March 25, from 8:00 pm to 6:00 am the following morning for median reconstruction in Lower Bucks County, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced Friday.
Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work area. 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.
JD Eckman, Inc., of Atglen, PA, is the general contractor on the $111.5 million Section RC2 project that is scheduled be completed in mid-2026. Alan Myers Construction, of Worcester, PA, is the general contractor on the $95 million Section RC1 project that is expected to be completed in mid-2022.
