U.S. 1 Lane Closures at Night Scheduled in Bucks County

road work

BUCKS COUNTY, PA — U.S. 1 will be reduced to one lane in each direction between the Street Road (Route 132) and Route 413 interchanges in Bensalem and Middletown townships on Monday, April 4, through Thursday, April 7, from 8:00 PM to 6:00 AM the following morning for median reconstruction in Bucks County, announced the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT).

Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work area. 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 to 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.
