U.S. 1 To Close Overnights For Overhead Bridge Rehabilitation

PennDOT News, Road Work Updates | April 6th, 2017

PennDOT has announced that northbound and southbound U.S. 1 is scheduled to close at the Oxford Valley Road Interchange in Falls and Lower Makefield townships, Bucks County from Sunday, April 9, through Friday, April 14, from 9:00 PM to 6:00 AM, for the rehabilitation of the structurally deficient Oxford Valley Road overpass.

During construction, U.S. 1 motorists will exit at Oxford Valley Road and then re-enter the highway at the entrance ramps at the interchange.

Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the construction area because slowdowns may occur. The work schedule is weather dependent.

Crews began construction on November 14, 2016, to rehabilitate the Oxford Valley Road bridge over U.S. 1. The bridge remains open to traffic while the contractor repairs structural damage sustained when the bridge was struck by an oversized truck on June 29, 2015. Crews will replace two steel beams and repair three steel beams. Construction on the bridge is scheduled to finish in June 2017.
