King of Prussia, PA – Alternating single lane closures will be in place on northbound and southbound U.S. 1 between Old Lincoln Highway and Rockhill Drive in Bensalem Township, Bucks County on Thursday, April 11, from 8:00 PM to 6:00 AM the following morning for construction activities on a project to widen and improve U.S.1 and reconstruct the interchange at Street Road (Route 132), the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today.
Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work area because backups and slowdowns will occur. All scheduled activities are weather dependent.
This corridor improvement project is 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.
