lane closures

BUCKS COUNTY, PA — U.S. 1 in Bucks County will be reduced to a single lane in each direction between the Pennsylvania Turnpike Interchange and the Penndel/Business U.S.1 Interchange in Bensalem and Middletown townships, on Monday, July 19, through Thursday, July 22, from 8:00 PM to 6:00 AM the following morning, for shoulder and median paving, states the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT).

The paving is being done to prepare the shoulders and median area for a traffic pattern change for an upcoming construction stage in the project to widen and improve U.S.1.

In addition, periodic lane restrictions also may be in place Monday, July 19, through Thursday, July 22, from 8:00 PM to 6:00 AM the following morning for construction on northbound and southbound U.S. 1 between Old Lincoln Highway and the Turnpike Interchange, and on eastbound and westbound Street Road (Route 132) between Old Lincoln Highway and Kingston Way in Bensalem Township.

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.
