U.S. 1 Lane Closures, Traffic Stoppages Planned at Night Next Week for Construction in Lower Bucks
Lane restrictions and periodic traffic stoppages will be in place at night next week on U.S. 1 between the Street Road (Route 132) and Route 413 interchanges in Bensalem and Middletown townships, in Lower Bucks County, for various construction activities, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today.
The work schedules and locations are:
- Monday, April 11, from 3:00 AM to 5:00 AM, periodic stoppages of up to 15 minutes will take place on northbound and southbound U.S. 1 between the Street Road and Neshaminy exits for removal of an overhead sign;
- Monday, April 11, through Thursday, April 14, from 8:00 PM to 6:00 AM the following morning, alternating single lane closures will be in place on northbound and southbound U.S. 1 between the Neshaminy and Penndel exits for painting at the new Bristol Road overpass; and
- Monday, April 11, through Thursday, April 14, from 8:00 PM to 6:00 AM the following morning, periodic single lane closures will be in place on northbound and southbound U.S. 1 between the Street Road (Route 132) and Route 413 exits for median construction. The periodic lane closures in these areas will be coordinated with the continuous lane closures at Bristol Road.
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.
