King of Prussia, PA – Westbound Pennsylvania Turnpike (I-276) motorists will encounter a right lane closure at the U.S. 1 Interchange in Bensalem Township, Bucks County from 10:00 PM Thursday, January 30, to 4:00 AM Friday, January 31, for repairs to the U.S. 1 overpass, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today.
