PennDOT will be changing the traffic pattern at the U.S. 1/Street Road interchange in Bensalem starting Tuesday. There will also be guide rail repairs on the same highway in Middletown this week.
Commuters using Route 1 in Bensalem have likely adjusted to the current, temporary traffic pattern over the past several months. Cars headed northbound have needed to stay in the left lane to access the PA Turnpike ramp.
But on Tuesday morning, it’s changing again. Motorists heading northbound to Street Road and the PA Turnpike must all stay in the right lane.
The change allows crews to continue their work on Stage 1 of construction on the interchange. This will continue through early February, when the traffic pattern will change again.
Tentatively scheduled for around Feb. 8, northbound traffic will use newly established lanes.
PennDOT will also be conducting guide rail repairs this week in Bensalem, Middletown, and Langhorne Borough. This day time work will last Monday through Friday.
From 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., there will be lane closures on U.S. 1 between Route 213 (Maple Avenue) and Rock Hill Drive in Bensalem.
