U.S. 1 Lane Closures, Traffic Stoppages at Night Next Week for Construction in Bensalem, Middletown Townships

05/13/2022

King of Prussia, PA – Lane restrictions are scheduled next week on U.S. 1 and Bristol Road in Bensalem and Middletown townships, Bucks County, for construction activities to rebuild, widen and improve U.S. 1, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today.

The work schedule and locations are:

  • Tuesday, May 17, through Thursday, May 19, from 8:00 PM to 10:00 PM, intermittent lane closures with periodic 15-minute traffic stoppages will be in place in both directions on U.S. 1 between the Route 413 and Neshaminy interchanges for blasting and excavation; and
  • Tuesday, May 17, through Thursday, May 19, from 8:00 PM to 10:00 PM, intermittent 15-minute traffic stoppages will be in place in both directions on Bristol Road between Old Lincoln Highway and Neshaminy Boulevard for blasting and excavation operations on U.S. 1.

Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work areas. All scheduled activities are weather dependent. 

Crews are reconstructing and widening almost three miles of U.S. 1, 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 $111.5 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 mid-2022.
