U.S. 1 Periodic Lane Closures Planned Through Summer in Bucks County

Travel Restrictions

BENSALEM TWP, PA — Periodic northbound and southbound lane closures will be in place this summer on U.S. 1 in Bucks County, on Mondays through Fridays from 8:00 PM to 6:00 AM the following morning, for construction on two reconstruction projects between the Neshaminy Interchange in Bensalem Township, and Route 413 in Middletown Township, announced the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT).

Periodic lane restrictions also may be in place Sunday nights through Friday mornings 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 Neshaminy 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.
