Lane closures will be in place at night next week in each direction on U.S. 1 and Street Road (Route 132) for various construction activities on a project to reconstruct, widen and improve a 1.3-mile section of the highway in Bensalem Township, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today.
On Monday, June 17, through Saturday, June 22, from 8:00 PM to 6:00 AM, 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.
The work is part of a corridor improvement project, and 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.
