County Line Road Improvement Project
Cost: $11.2 million
County: Bucks, Montgomery
U.S. 1 Bucks County Widening & Improvement Project (Section RC2)
Cost: $115.2 million
U.S. 1 (Roosevelt Expressway) Viaduct Rehabilitation
Cost: $95.5 million
The $11.2 million County Line Road widening and improvement project will be completed this fall, more than two years ahead of schedule on the $11.2 contract in Warrington Township, Bucks County and Horsham Township, Montgomery County.
The project began in March 2021 to rebuild and improve a 3.1-mile section of County Line Road between Kulp Road and Easton Road (Route 611) to provide motorists with uniform, 11-foot-wide travel lanes and five-foot-wide shoulders between Kulp Road and Easton Road (Route 611).
The project was originally scheduled to finish in 2026; however, the implementation of an accelerated timeframe for bridge replacement and the combination of construction stages helped reduce the construction schedule by more than two years. The project is currently scheduled to be completed this fall following final paving, line striping and other construction activities that will require lane closures during off-peak travel times. There are no additional full closures planned for the remainder of this project.
On Tuesday, September 19, 2023, westbound County Line Road was reopened to traffic between Fairmount Avenue and Kulp Road East as eastbound traffic was shifted onto the newly constructed eastbound lanes in that section to complete Stage 2 construction under this improvement project.
Stage 2 construction followed Stages 1, 3, and 4, in which PennDOT's contractor replaced the deteriorating masonry arch bridge carrying County Line Road over a tributary to Little Neshaminy Creek with a six-foot-wide, single-span extension. The bridge was initially planned to close for replacement in 2023; however, due to damage the bridge sustained during Tropical Storm Ida in September 2021, the department accelerated the timeframe for building the new replacement structure.
PennDOT's contractor also rebuilt and raised the elevation of County Line Road between Park Road and Bradford Road to enhance safety and drainage; performed intersection improvements at Folly Road, Maggie Way, and the Bradford Green Drives; and widened shoulders and resurfaced the roadway between Kulp Road East and Fairmont Avenue.
Additional improvements include upgrading traffic signals, ADA curb ramps, guiderail and drainage; and performing additional work items to enhance safety and travel for the motoring public.
James D. Morrissey, Inc., of Philadelphia, is the general contractor on the project, which is financed with 80 percent federal and 20 percent state funds.

Construction progresses this fall on three new bridges being replaced under the $111 million project to widen and improve U.S. 1 in Bensalem and Middletown townships, Bucks County.
New structures over the Neshaminy Creek, the Penndel/Business U.S. 1 Interchange and adjacent rail lines, and Rockhill Drive at the Neshaminy Exit remain in various stages of construction.
The northbound side of the old bridge over the Neshaminy Creek was dismantled over the summer, and crews are now building abutments and a center support column for the new northbound span. The new southbound bridge over the creek was finished earlier in the year and is now carrying four lanes of northbound and southbound traffic.
At the Penndel/Business U.S. 1 exit north of the creek, traffic is using the new northbound bridge over the interchange while the adjacent southbound structure is being built. Crews set deck beams for the new bridge in late summer and will continue the process of building the new bridgeâ€™s deck through the remainder of the year.
At the Neshaminy exit south of the creek, where work on the new northbound bridge finished in mid-summer, construction is now underway on the new southbound side of the overpass at Rockhill Drive.
The new northbound off-on ramps at Rockhill Drive, now both located at the southeast quadrant of the interchange, are in service while work continues on the ramps on the southbound side of the interchange through next spring. While the on-ramp to southbound U.S. 1 is still closed for construction, the southbound U.S. 1 off-ramp to Rockhill Drive remains open during construction.
Activity on U.S. 1 between the Turnpike and the bridge over Rockhill Drive has shifted to the median area, where crews are installing new drainage components and sign structures prior to constructing new pavement.
Section RC2 is part two of PennDOT's three-phase project to improve four miles of U.S. 1 in Bucks County by reconstructing and widening the pavement, building several bridges, and improving several interchanges along a continuous three-mile section of highway in Bensalem and Middletown townships. RC2 construction is expected to be completed in mid-2026.
PennDOT in 2014 completed $14.8 million in improvements at the U.S. 1/Maple Avenue Interchange in Middletown Township as part of their overall initiative to modernize and upgrade the U.S. 1 corridor in Bucks County.
A third project, RC3, will improve U.S. 1 from the Penndel/Business U.S. 1 Interchange north through the Route 413 overpass. The project remains in Final Design and is not yet scheduled for construction.
Cost: $115.2 million
Repaving of the entire U.S. 1/Roosevelt Expressway was completed in late summer, leaving only "punch list" construction to be completed this fall before all work wraps up on PennDOT's five-year $95.5 million project to rehabilitate the half-mile-long Wayne Avenue Viaduct over SEPTA and the Nicetown neighborhood in Philadelphia.
The temporary construction barrier in place since the start of the project was removed in mid-summer to substantially complete the viaduct's structural rehabilitation while remaining substructure repairs, painting, and installation of new lighting were made to the underside of the structure.
The expressway on both sides of the viaduct was milled, repaved, and line-striped from 9th Street to Interstate 76. The viaduct's new concrete deck was diamond ground to obtain a uniformly smooth surface due to staged construction and will be finished with an epoxy overlay to protect the new deck.
Punch list tasks will be completed by mid-December 2023 and the Cayuga Street ramp to southbound U.S.1 will reopen to mark the project's completion.
PennDOT began rehabilitating the Wayne Junction Viaduct between the Broad Street and Wissahickon/Germantown Avenue exits in early 2019. Repairs were made to the viaduct's structural components, the steel superstructure was repainted, and a new concrete deck was placed on the 2,589-foot-long structure. The bridge's support piers and abutments also were rehabilitated and painted in a color that complements the new color applied to the superstructure.
Several new sign structures also were installed under the contract, including replacement of highway signs on and near U.S. 1. Additionally, several digital message boards were placed on northbound and southbound Broad Street and on I-76 to communicate with motorists traveling along regional highways.
In addition to work on the viaduct, the project included repairs and repainting of the structural steel and abutments at the Fox Street bridge over U.S. 1. Following the installation of a new water main, the overpass was repaved, and ADA sidewalk ramps were installed.
