U.S. Highway 1


The highway guide for U.S. 1 is split between two components:

U.S. 1 Business north
U.S. 1 Business (Lincoln Highway) northbound at the U.S. 1 freeway near Fallsington. U.S. 1 follows a four-lane freeway from Trenton and Morrisville westward to Langhorne and Oakford. The Lincoln Highway sees a northbound on-ramp near its intersection with New Tyburn Road and Woolston Drive. The on-ramp serves the Fairless Hills interchange of U.S. 1. Photo taken 10/03/04.
U.S. 1 Business south
Lincoln Highway westbound within the borough of Penndel on U.S. 1 Business southbound. A Pennsylvania Turnpike trailblazer guides motorists from the Pennsylvania 413 & 513 (Bellevue Avenue) intersection westward to the U.S. 1 freeway and its junction with Interstate 276 at Bensalem. Photo taken 10/03/04.
U.S. 1 Business southbound separates from northbound at the U.S. 1 freeway. The northbound beginning of highway enters the scene from the left. U.S. 1 Business (Lincoln Highway) passes under the freeway ahead before merging onto the U.S. 1 mainline and ending. Photo taken 10/03/04.
U.S. 1 Business splits with the Old Lincoln Highway ahead of the ramp onto U.S. 1 south. The freeway for the US highway carries the Lincoln Highway name southwest to Philadelphia and Roosevelt Boulevard. Old Lincoln Highway meanwhile parallels the four-lane highway alongside southbound between Oakford and Bensalem Township. Photo taken 10/03/04.
U.S. 1 scenes
Constructed in the 1960s, the U.S. 1 Oxford Bypass provides a limited access route from the Maryland State line to Longwood Gardens, a distance of about 22 miles. The freeway constitutes four lanes with no intersections between Ridge Road and old U.S. 1 (Baltimore Pike) at Kennett Square. This view of the freeway looks from the Pennsylvania 472 overpass near Oxford to the southwest. Photo taken 05/00.
Eastbound view of the freeway amid lush green mid-spring splendor from the same overpass. The advance of suburban sprawl can be seen to the southeast (right) of this photograph. Photo taken 05/00.
Pennsylvania 352 (Middletown Road) southbound at its loop ramp onto U.S. 1 (Baltimore Pike) northbound at Lima. A small mileage sign coincides with the U.S. 1 shield at the junction. These types of signs are typical at intersections throughout the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Photo taken 08/15/04.
Trenton Makes Bridge, former U.S. 1, as it crosses the Delaware River from Morrisville into Trenton, New Jersey. Ray Martin adds: The bridge is called the "Trenton Makes Bridge" because if you cross it from the U.S. 1 bridge at night, there are neon letters that display "Trenton Makes, The World Takes". The U.S. 1 toll bridge can be seen to the right in this photograph. Photos taken 06/10/00.

The Old Lincoln Highway intersects U.S. 1 (Roosevelt Boulevard / Lincoln Highway) just north of the Philadelphia city line. The original alignment of U.S. 1 dead ends at an abandoned crossing of the Poquessing Creek and Philadelphia County line. The highway continues north of U.S. 1 into Oakford otherwise. Photo taken 10/03/04.
The Old Lincoln Highway southbound ends at an abandoned stone arch bridge crossing of the Poquessing Creek at the Philadelphia city / county line. The bridge deck is overgrown with grass and weeds. The structure otherwise is fairly in tact. Photo taken 10/03/04.
Views of the Old Lincoln Highway abandoned bridge over the Poquessing Creek. Land across the creek within Philadelphia is part of Benjamin Rush State Park. Photos taken 10/03/04.
