PennDOT Provides Major Update on Long-Term U.S. 1 Improvements Project
As work continues on a major road that goes through Bucks County, the state’s official transportation organization has some major updates.
The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced the construction of three new bridges over U.S. 1 along with the continued widening of the highway.
Construction crews began a traffic shift and paving project on April 2 in the area of Bensalem and Middletown Township that U.S. 1 goes through. This part of the project is expected to end on April 6.
“With all lanes of traffic now on the rebuilt northbound portion of the U.S. 1 bridge over the Penndel/Business 1 Interchange and adjacent CSX/SEPTA rail lines, demolition began in January to prepare for the construction of the southbound side of the structure,” TMA Bucks wrote online.
“The old bridge’s remaining support piers will be demolished this spring as crews construct the abutments for the new southbound span.”
The last portion of the project in Bucks County will see updates to a part of Lincoln Highway in Langhorne. That part of the project is not expected to begin until 2026.
