BUCKS COUNTY, PA — U.S. 1 in Bucks County will be reduced to a single lane in each direction Tuesday, July 6, through Thursday, July 8, from 8:00 PM to 6:00 AM the following morning, for placement of construction barriers in the median between the Pennsylvania Turnpike Interchange and Route 413 interchanges in Bensalem and Middletown townships, reports the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT).
The barriers will protect work crews during ongoing construction to reconstruct, widen, and improve U.S.1 in that area.
In addition, periodic lane restrictions also may be in place Tuesday, July 6, through Thursday, July 8, from 8:00 PM to 6:00 AM, 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 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 late 2021.
