Periodic northbound and southbound lane closures will continue to 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, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today.
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.
JD Eckman, Inc., of Atglen, PA, is the general contractor on the $110.8 million Section RC2 project that is scheduled 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 late 2021.
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 the expressway from just north of Philadelphia to just north of Route 413 (Pine Street) in Middletown Township and Langhorne Borough.
