lane closure - traffic alert

BUCKS COUNTY, PA — Overnight lane restrictions are scheduled on U.S. 1 between Old Lincoln Highway in Bensalem Township and the Highland Avenue Exit in Middletown Township for construction activities in Bucks County, announced the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT).

The work schedules and locations are:

  • Monday, April 18, through Thursday, April 21, from 8:00 PM to 6:00 AM the following morning, alternating single lane closures are scheduled in both directions on U.S. 1 between the Old Lincoln Highway and the Neshaminy interchanges for paving, line painting, median construction, and a shift of southbound traffic onto the new southbound pavement; and
  • Monday, April 18, through Friday, April 22, from 8:00 PM to 6:00 AM the following morning, southbound U.S. 1 will be reduced to a single lane between the Neshaminy and Highland Avenue interchanges for beam setting for the new southbound U.S. 1 bridge over the Neshaminy Creek.

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