BENSALEM TWP, PA — Lane and ramp closures will be in place on U.S. 1 and at the Turnpike’s Bensalem Interchange, and on Street Road (Route 132) in Bensalem Township, Bucks County, at night next week for paving and related activities, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced.

Alternating closures of the ramps to and from U.S. 1 and the Turnpike interchange  will be in place on Sunday, August 7, through Friday, August 12, from 7:00 PM to 6:00 AM the following morning. During each ramp closure, traffic to or from the Turnpike will be detoured either on northbound U.S. 1 to the Neshaminy Exit or on southbound U.S. 1 to the Street Road (Route 132) Exit.
