Early Stage Construction Underway
Fall 2018 – Early-stage construction is underway this fall on PennDOT’s $94 million U.S. 1 Improvement Project in Bensalem Township, Bucks County.
Crews will work this fall and into the winter to reconstruct and widen the existing shoulders and median along U.S. 1 (Lincoln Highway) between Old Lincoln Highway and the Rockhill Drive overpass north of the Turnpike Interchange, and on PA 132/Street Road about three-quarters of a mile east and west of the U.S. 1 (Lincoln Highway) overpass. The shoulders are being widened temporarily so that they can be used as travel lanes during upcoming construction stages to widen the highway.
Work also is underway this fall to install a temporary traffic signal at the intersection of PA 132/Street Road and Township Road T-329, which will be extended to provide access from PA 132/Street Road to several businesses along northbound U.S. 1(Lincoln Highway). New driveways also will be constructed to access the Red Roof Inn from PA 132/Street Road.
Work also will begin this fall on improvements to the storm water management system on PA 132/Street Road, and on installation of environmental controls for the project, including stream mitigation activities at various locations along the corridor.
In early 2019, work will begin on reconstruction and widening of the northbound roadway and bridges on U.S. 1 (Lincoln Highway), as well as replacement and improvements to the PA Turnpike and PA 132/Street Road ramps on the northbound side of U.S. 1(Lincoln Highway).
In addition, work will begin, weather permitting, on reconstruction of eastbound PA 132/Street Road and construction of two new ramps adjacent at the U.S. 1(Lincoln Highway) Interchange at PA 132/Street Road.
