King of Prussia, PA – Overnight lane restrictions are scheduled on northbound U.S. 1 from the Pennsylvania Turnpike Interchange to just north of the Route 413 (Bellevue Avenue) exit in Bensalem and Middletown townships and Langhorne Manor Borough, Bucks County, beginning Sunday, April 29, from 9:00 PM to 5:00 AM, for milling and paving operations as part of a project to repair and resurface 27 miles of state highway in Bucks County, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today. This Sunday through Thursday operation will continue through Thursday, May 24.
Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work zone because slowdowns will occur during construction. The contractor's schedule is dependent on the weather.
Under this improvement project, PennDOT is milling the existing roadway surface and repaving the state highways with new asphalt. The new pavement will seal the roadways and provide motorists with a smoother riding surface.
H&K Group, Inc., of Skippack, Montgomery County, is the general contractor on the $7,599,037 project, which is financed with 100 percent state funds from Act 89, Pennsylvania’s transportation plan.
