U.S. 1, Street Road (Route 132) Lane Closures at Night Next Week for Construction in Bensalem Township
Nighttime lane restrictions will be in place periodically on U.S. 1 and Street Road (Route 132) next week as the contractor continues reconstruction of the southbound side of U.S. 1— and three U.S. 1 bridges — as well as the center section of Street Road (Route 132) under the final major stage (Stage 4) of the project to widen and improve U.S.1 and its interchanges in Bucks County, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today.
The weather dependent work schedule and locations are:
In addition, the ramp from westbound Street Road (Route 132) to southbound U.S. 1 is closed. Traffic normally using this ramp will continue west, then turn left on Old Lincoln Highway back to U.S. 1.
For Stage 4 construction, two lanes of southbound U.S. 1 traffic have been shifted to the rebuilt middle for reconstruction of the southbound roadway and construction of the southbound side of new U.S. 1 bridges over the Pennsylvania Turnpike, the Turnpike ramps, and Street Road (Route 132).
Motorists are advised to allow extra time for travel through the work area.
In addition, Bristol Road remains closed to through traffic between Old Lincoln Highway and Neshaminy Boulevard until spring 2021 for replacement of the bridge over U.S.1.
Work on this project will be in accordance with Centers for Disease Control and state Department of Health guidance as well as a project-specific COVID-19 safety plan, which will include protocols for social distancing, use of face coverings, personal and job-site cleaning protocols, management of entries to the jobsite, special signage and relevant training.
