U.S. 1, Street Road Lane Closures at Night April 15-18 for Construction in Bensalem Township

April 12, 2019 – Lane closures will be in place at night in each direction on U.S. 1 and Street Road (Route 132) in Bensalem Township, Bucks County, for various construction activities including pothole repair on a project to widen and improve U.S.1 and reconstruct the interchange at Street Road (Route 132), the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today.

On Monday, April 15, through Thursday, April 18, from 8:00 PM to 6:00 AM the following morning, northbound and southbound U.S. 1 will be reduced to a single lane between Rockhill Drive and Old Lincoln Highway, and Street Road (Route 132) will be reduced to a single lane in each direction between Old Lincoln Highway and Kingston Way. All scheduled activities are weather dependent. 

This corridor improvement project is the first of 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.

New Traffic Patterns in Place on U.S. 1

The new traffic patterns are in effect as of Friday, February 22, on U.S. 1 and the ramps to and from eastbound Street Road.

The patterns move all U.S. 1 traffic to the west and close the ramps to and from northbound U.S. 1 and eastbound Street Road. 

The closed ramps are being re-routed to the ramps on the opposite side of the interchange, where a temporary signalized intersection has been constructed at the base of those ramps. The temporary intersection allows ramp traffic to access eastbound and westbound Street Road, and eastbound Street Road to access northbound U.S. 1. The ramp from westbound Street Road to northbound U.S. 1 remains open during construction at the interchange.
