Traffic Restrictions Chester County

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced that milling operations are planned at night next week on Interstate 295 in Bucks County under a $44.6 million improvement project to perform high-priority repairs on several structures on I-295, Interstate 95, and Interstate 476 in Bucks, Philadelphia, and Delaware counties.

The work schedule and location are:

  • Monday, May 22, through Thursday, May 25, from 7:30 PM to 5:00 AM the following morning, a single lane closure is scheduled on eastbound and/or westbound I-295 between Route 413 (Bristol) and Business U.S. 1/Route 413 (Penndel/Levittown) interchanges in Bristol and Middletown townships.

Drivers are being advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work areas because backups and delays will occur. All scheduled activities are weather dependent.

Repairs to the structures under this project include replacing rocker bearings, frozen sliding plate bearings and deck expansion joints; cleaning and painting steel beams; repairing substructure concrete; and reconstructing bearing pedestals.

The project also includes the replacement of high mast light poles along the I-95 corridor in Philadelphia and Delaware counties.

Driscoll Construction Company, Inc. of Philadelphia is the general contractor on the project, which is financed with 100% federal funds.
