PennDOT District 6 says U.S. 1 will be closed between the Neshaminy and Business U.S. 1/Penndel interchanges on Saturday, November 7, from 10:00 PM to 10:00 AM the following morning, for demolition of the Bristol Road overpass in Bensalem Township.
In advance of work on the overpass, northbound and southbound U.S. 1 traffic will encounter periodic full stoppages of up to 15 minutes between the Neshaminy and U.S. 1/Business 1/Penndel interchanges on Monday, November 2, from 11:00 PM to 5:00 AM the following morning, for rehanging overhead utility lines over U.S. 1 at the overpass.
Additionally, Bristol Road between Old Lincoln Highway and Neshaminy Boulevard will be closed to through traffic for approximately six months beginning at 6:00 AM Friday, November 6, for replacement of the overpass.
This one-night bridge removal operation will generate noise that will be heard in neighborhoods within close proximity of the bridge. This work is being expedited over a single evening to reduce long term nightwork operations and inconvenience to the neighborhoods.
The replacement of the Bristol Road overpass during the current construction stage will also accelerate the completion date for the entire RC1 Section by at least one year. The project is now scheduled to finish in late 2021.
Additional daytime and nighttime lane restrictions also will be in place on U.S. 1 and Street Road (Route 132) next week for bridge and roadway construction under the ongoing project to widen and improve U.S.1 in Bucks County.
