Lane Restrictions & Temporary Traffic Stoppages On Route 1 In Middletown Township:

The northbound and southbound right lane will be closed on U.S. Route 1 between South Bellevue Avenue and Interstate 95 in Middletown Township, Bucks County, on Monday through Friday (Oct. 13-17) from 9:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m. for the installation of an overhead sign structure.

There will also be intermittent 15-minute traffic stoppages. This operation is one of the final items of work on the $15.8 million project to improve Route 1 by replacing the three-span, pre-stressed box beam bridge over Route 213 with a new single-span, pre-stressed concrete beam structure. Crews also rebuilt and realigned the Route 1 ramps to Route 213; resurfaced the roadway approaches and ramps; and installed glare screens on the median barrier, pavement markers and guide rail and drainage systems.

The speed limit on Route 1 is reduced from 55 miles per hour to 40 miles per hour in the construction zone.
