BUCKS COUNTY, PA — Periodic northbound and/or southbound single lane closures may be in place on U.S. 1 between Old Lincoln Highway and the Business U.S. 1 (Penndel) Interchange in Bensalem and Middletown townships, Bucks County, on Monday, July 26, through Thursday, July 29, from 8:00 PM to 6:00 AM the following morning for roadway construction, announced the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT).
In addition, periodic lane restrictions also may be in place on eastbound and/or westbound Street Road (Route 132) between Old Lincoln Highway and Kingston Way in Bensalem Township on Monday, July 26, through Thursday, July 29, from 8:00 PM to 6:00 AM the following morning for various construction activities.
Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work areas because backups and delays will occur. All scheduled activities are weather-dependent.
Crews are reconstructing and widening almost three miles of roadway, 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 $110.8 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.
PennDOT state that Sections RC1 and RC2 are two of the three construction contracts to rebuild and widen U.S. 1; replace aging bridges; and install safety enhancements along a four-mile section of the expressway from just north of Philadelphia to just north of Route 413 (Pine Street) in Middletown Township and Langhorne Borough.
