BENSALEM TWP, PA — Northbound U.S. 1 in Bucks County will be reduced to a single lane between the Neshaminy and the Penndel/Business U.S.1 interchanges in Bensalem Township on Monday, January 17, through Thursday, January 20, from 8:00 PM and 6:00 AM the following morning for excavation to widen the expressway, announced the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT).
In addition, periodic lane restrictions also may be in place Mondays through Thursdays 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 Pennsylvania Turnpike interchange and on eastbound and/or westbound Street Road (Route 132) between Old Lincoln Highway and Kingston Way in Bensalem Township.
Motorists are 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 $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 mid-2022.
Sections RC1 and RC2 are two of the three construction contracts to rebuild and widen U.S. 1; replace aging bridges, and install safety enhancements along a four-mile section of expressway from just north of Philadelphia to just north of Route 413 (Pine Street) in Middletown Township and Langhorne Borough.
