Lane closures will be in place at night the week of March 18 in each direction on U.S. 1 and Street Road (Route 132) in Bensalem Township, Bucks County for construction activities on a project to widen and improve U.S.1 and reconstruct the interchange at Street Road (Route 132).
On Monday, March 18, through Friday, March 22, 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.
The lane restrictions will be in place as construction remove the existing northbound U.S.1 concrete pavement, begin installation of the project’s stormwater drainage system, dismantle overhead signs, and begin construction activities on the Street Road (Route 132) overpass.
The first of two years of northbound work, including reconstruction of the Street Road (Route 132) ramps on both sides of the interchange, is currently underway on the project to widen and improve a 1.3-mile section of U.S. 1 from Old Lincoln Highway, at the Philadelphia border, to north of the Pennsylvania Turnpike’s Bensalem Interchange.
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.
