Lane closures will be in place at night on U.S. 1 and Street Road (Route 132) for roadway and bridge construction and related activities on a project to reconstruct, widen and improve a 1.3-mile section of the highway in Bensalem Township, Bucks County, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today.

The work schedule is: 

  • Sunday, November 3, through Saturday, November 9, from 8:00 PM to 6:00 AM the following morning, single-lane closures will be in place periodically on northbound and southbound U.S. 1 between Rockhill Drive and Old Lincoln Highway;
  • Sunday, November 3, through Saturday, November 9, from 8:00 PM to 6:00 AM the following morning, eastbound and westbound single lane closures will be in place periodically on Street Road (Route 132) between Old Lincoln Highway and Kingston Way; and
  • Monday, November 4, through Friday, November 8, from 8:00 PM to 6:00 AM the following morning, northbound or southbound U.S. 1 will be reduced to a single lane between Rockhill Drive and Fairhill Avenue (south of the Belleview Avenue exit) for soil testing operations. Crews expect to complete northbound testing early in the week and shift operations to the southbound side by mid-week. 

Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work areas because backups and slowdowns will occur. All scheduled activities are weather permitting. 

The work is part of a corridor improvement project to rebuild and widen U.S. 1; replace aging bridges; and install safety enhancements along a four-mile section of the expressway from just north of Philadelphia to just north of Route 413 (Pine Street) in Middletown Township and Langhorne Borough.
