King of Prussia, PA – Right lane closures are scheduled on northbound and southbound U.S. 1 between the Route 10 (Limestone Road) and Route 896 (Newark Road) interchanges in Upper Oxford and Lower Oxford townships, Chester County, on Monday, September 25, through Friday, September 29, from 7:00 AM to 5:00 PM, for substructure work on the bridges carrying University Road and Township Road over U.S. 1, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today.
Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the construction area because slowdowns will occur. The work schedule is weather dependent.
Within the last three weeks, PennDOT reopened the bridge carrying University Road over U.S. 1 in Upper Oxford Township, and started construction to rehabilitate the structurally-deficient bridge carrying Township Road over U.S. 1 in Lower Oxford Township.
The two structures are among 10 bridges in Bucks, Chester and Montgomery counties that PennDOT is repairing under a $5,505,505 project financed by Act 89, the state’s transportation plan.
Work on the entire project is expected to be completed in October 2019.
Loftus Construction, Inc., of Cinnaminson, N.J., is the general contractor on the project which is financed with 100 percent state funds.
