King of Prussia, PA – Periodic lane closures will be in place at night next week on U.S. 1 and Street Road (Route 132) for bridge and roadway construction that includes a traffic shift and opening of the new ramps at the Street Road Interchange in Bensalem Township, Bucks County, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today.
The work schedule is:
- Sunday, November 17, through Saturday, November 23, from 8:00 PM to 6:00 AM the following morning, single lane closures will be in place periodically on northbound and southbound U.S. 1 between Rockhill Drive and Old Lincoln Highway;
- Sunday, November 17, through Saturday, November 23, from 8:00 PM to 6:00 AM the following morning, eastbound and westbound single lane closures will be in place periodically on Street Road (Route 132) between Old Lincoln Highway and Kingston Way;
- Monday, November 18, through Friday, November 22, from 8:00 PM to 6:00 AM the following morning, northbound or southbound U.S. 1 may be reduced periodically to a single lane between Rockhill Drive and Fairhill Avenue (south of the Belleview Avenue exit) for soil testing operations; and
- Monday, November 18, through Friday, November 22, from 8:00 PM to 6:00 AM the following morning, northbound or southbound Old Lincoln Highway may be reduced periodically to a single lane between Bristol Road and Carter Avenue for soil testing operations.
During scheduled overnight lane restrictions on Street Road (Route 132) late in the week, eastbound and westbound traffic will be shifted onto the newly widened eastbound side through the work area and work will get underway to widen the westbound side of the roadway.
With the shift, the new Street Road ramps to and from northbound U.S. 1 on the eastbound side of the interchange will open and the ramps on the opposite side will be closed for reconstruction.
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.
The work is part of a corridor improvement project 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.
