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 6, through Thursday, June 9, from 8:00 PM to 10:00 PM, intermittent single lane closures with 15-minute traffic stoppages will be in place on U.S. 1 in both directions between the Route 413 and Neshaminy interchanges for blasting and excavation;
  • Monday, June 6, through Thursday, June 9, from 8:00 PM to 10:00 PM, intermittent 15-minute traffic stoppages will be in place on Bristol Road in both directions between Old Lincoln Highway and Neshaminy Boulevard during the blasting and excavation on U.S. 1
  • Wednesday, June 8, and Thursday, June 9, from 8:00 PM to 6:00 AM the following morning, a single-lane traffic pattern with flaggers will be in place on Rockhill Drive between Old Lincoln Highway and Neshaminy Boulevard for paving.

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.
