Single lane closures will begin tonight on two major roadways in Lower Bucks, Penn DOT announced last week.
The alternating single lane closures will be in place on U.S. 1 and Street Road (Route 132) in both directions on Sunday, August 18, through Saturday, August 24, from 8:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m the following morning for various construction activities and repairs under a project to reconstruct, widen and improve a 1.3-mile section of the highway in Bensalem Township.
The work locations are:
- U.S. 1 between Rockhill Drive and Old Lincoln Highway; and
- Street Road (Route 132) between Old Lincoln Highway and Kingston Way.
Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work areas because backups and slowdowns will occur. All scheduled activities are weather permitting.
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.
