U.S. 1 Lane Closures at Night This Week for Construction in Lower Bucks
Intermittent northbound and southbound single lane closures will be in place on U.S. 1 between the Street Road (Route 132) and Highland Avenue exits in Bensalem and Middletown townships, Bucks County, on Monday, May 2, through Thursday, May 5, from 8:00 PM to 6:00 AM the following morning for line striping and installation of construction barrier, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced Friday
Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work areas. All scheduled activities are weather dependent.
