In the ongoing effort to rebuild, widen and improve U.S. 1 PennDOT announced today that Northbound U.S. 1 will be reduced to a single lane on Monday, July 11, through Friday, July 15, from 8:00 PM to 6:00 AM the following morning between Old Lincoln Highway and the Neshaminy Exit in Bensalem Township for construction activities in Bucks County.

Crews will be removing the construction barriers and completing other activities for a final traffic shift of northbound vehicles onto the reconstructed and widened northbound side of U.S. 1.

In addition, southbound Old Lincoln Highway will be closed for approximately two months beginning Monday, July 18, from the ramp to southbound U.S. 1 to Bristol Road in Middletown Township for reconstruction.

Motorists will be detoured south on U.S. 1, exit at the Neshaminy Interchange, then turn right onto Rockhill Drive to access Old Lincoln Highway.

PennDOT is 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.

JD Eckman, Inc., of Atglen, PA, is the general contractor on the $111.5 million Section RC2 project that is scheduled to be completed in mid-2026. Alan Myers Construction, of Worcester, PA, is the general contractor on the $95 million Section RC1 project that is expected to be completed this summer.
