To limit congestion, queues, and delays due to construction, 2 lanes of traffic will be maintained in both directions on the U.S. 1 mainline and along Street Road from 5am to 9pm. Based on experience along the corridor, traffic will be able to be reduced to 1 lane in each direction from 9pm to 5am, when traffic volumes are much lower.
At certain times throughout the life of the project, 15-minute rolling traffic stoppages are anticipated to allow for overhead work such as bridge demolition, bridge beam installation, overhead sign structure truss installation, etc. These traffic stoppages will be limited to occur during overnight hours when traffic volumes are the lowest.
Bristol Road is anticipated to be the only long term detour for construction of the Bristol Road Overpass. Bristol Road will be detoured via Rockhill Drive, Old Lincoln Highway and Neshaminy Boulevard during reconstruction of the Bristol Road overpass.
