Center area construction has been under way this summer on U.S. 1 and on Street Road (Route 132) as the project to widen and improve U.S. 1 and reconstruct the interchange at Street Road (Route 132) moves toward completion of the current stage and a shift to southbound reconstruction this fall.
Work on this project is being done in accordance with Centers for Disease Control and state Department of Health guidance as well as a project-specific COVID-19 safety plan, which includes protocols for social distancing, use of face coverings, person and job site cleaning protocols, management of entries to the job site, special signing, and relevant training.
Crews this summer are completing installation of stormwater drainage pipes and inlets and begin paving the median area while continuing construction of the middle portions of the U.S. 1 bridges over the Pennsylvania Turnpike, the PA Turnpike ramps, and Street Road (Route 132).
Work this summer also includes construction of the new ramp from eastbound Street Road to southbound U.S. 1 and realignment of the slip ramp from Horizon Boulevard to the PA Turnpike’s Bensalem Toll Plaza on the southbound side of U.S. 1.
On Street Road (Route 132) reconstruction of the westbound lanes between Kingston Way and U.S. 1 has wrapped up, with work shifting to the middle section of the roadway as well.
New PA Turnpike ramps on the northbound side of U.S. 1 also will be completed this summer.
Access to and from properties located on both sides of U.S. 1 will continue to be maintained during construction.
