U.S. 1 Lane Closures at Night Next Week for Construction in Lower Bucks
Travel restrictions are planned next week on U.S. 1, Bristol Road, and Rockhill Drive in Bensalem and Middletown townships, Bucks County, for various construction activities, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today.
The work schedule and locations are:
- Monday, May 23, through Thursday, May 26, from 8:00 PM to 6:00 AM the following morning, a single lane traffic pattern with flaggers will be in place on Rockhill Drive between Old Lincoln Highway and Neshaminy Boulevard for paving and construction barrier installation;
- Tuesday, May 24, through Thursday, May 26, from 8:00 PM to 10:00 PM, intermittent single lane closures with 15-minute traffic stoppages will be in place on U.S. 1 in both directions between the Route 413 and Neshaminy exits for blasting and excavation; and

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.
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.
