King of Prussia, PA – Lane closures will be in place at night next week in each direction on U.S. 1 and Street Road (Route 132) for various construction activities on a project to reconstruct, widen and improve a 1.3-mile section of the highway in Bensalem Township, Bucks County, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today.
On Monday, June 17, through Saturday, June 22, from 8:00 PM to 6:00 AM, 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.
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.
In addition, lane closures will be in place Monday, June 17, through Friday, June 21, from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM, and from 8:00 PM to 6:00 AM the following morning, on Rockhill Drive in both directions between Business U.S. 1 and Neshaminy Boulevard for soil boring. This work is part of the advance engineering activities on the second contract to reconstruct, widen and improve a 1.5-mile section of U.S. 1 from just south of the Rockhill Drive Interchange to just north of the Business U.S. 1 (Penndel) Interchange in Bensalem and Middletown townships.
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.
