Daytime and nighttime lane restrictions will be in place on U.S. 1 and Street Road (Route 132) next week for bridge and roadway construction under a project to widen and improve U.S.1 in Bucks County, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today.
The work schedule is:
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.
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.
Crews currently are reconstructing the middle section along 1.3 miles of U.S. 1, and the middle section of Street Road (Route 132) under the second major stage of the RC1 project. Ongoing activities also include construction of the center sections of U.S. 1 bridges over Street Road (Route 132), the Pennsylvania Turnpike, and the Turnpike ramps at the Bensalem Interchange.
