The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today that construction will continue next week on the nearly-completed new northbound U.S. 1 bridge over Old Lincoln Highway (Business U.S. 1) and adjacent rail lines in Middletown Township, Bucks County.
Motorists are advised of the following travel restriction:
Drivers are advised to allow extra time when traveling through or near the work area. All scheduled activities are weather dependent.
Following removal of the underside materials, PennDOT’s contractor will begin preparations to shift northbound and southbound U.S. 1 traffic onto the new bridge and begin work to build the adjacent southbound structure after the Thanksgiving Day holiday.
PennDOT is reconstructing and improving U.S. 1 and replacing several bridges from the PA Turnpike (Interstate 276) to north of the Penndel/Business U.S. 1 interchange in Bensalem and Middletown townships as part of the $111.5 million Section RC2 project that is scheduled to finish in mid-2026. Construction on the $95 million Section RC1 project between the PA Turnpike and Old Lincoln Highway will finish in December.
