In the ongoing effort to rebuild, widen and improve U.S. 1 PennDOT announced today that travel restrictions are planned next week on U.S. 1, Bristol Road, and Rockhill Drive in Bensalem and Middletown townships for various construction activities.

The work schedule and locations are:

  • Monday, June 13, from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM, Rockhill Drive will be reduced to a single lane with flaggers between Old Lincoln Highway and Neshaminy Boulevard for shoulder paving;
  • Monday, June 13, and Tuesday, June 14, from 8:00 PM to 6:00 AM the following morning, Rockhill Drive will be reduced to a single lane with flaggers between Old Lincoln Highway and Neshaminy Boulevard for line striping and construction barrier placement; and
  • Monday, June 13, through Thursday, June 16, from 8:00 PM to 6:00 AM the following morning, intermittent traffic stoppages will occur on southbound Old Lincoln Highway between Bristol Road and Hulmeville Road for overhead bridge beam erection at the U.S. 1 overpass.

PennDOT is advising Motorists to allow extra time when traveling through the work areas. All scheduled activities are, of course, weather dependent.

Crews are reconstructing and widening almost three miles of U.S. 1, improving the interchanges, and constructing several new bridges — including new structures over the Neshaminy Creek and over rail lines near the Penndel exit— under two contracts (RC1, RC2) to rebuild, widen and improve U.S. 1 in Bucks County.
