traffic alert

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today that regional bridge repairs will continue next week on Interstate 95 in Philadelphia under a $44.6 million bridge improvement project to perform high-priority repairs on several structures on I-95, Interstate 476 and Interstate 295 in Philadelphia, Delaware and Bucks counties.

The work schedules and locations are:

  • Thursday, March 9, from 7:30 PM to 5:00 AM the following morning, lane closures are scheduled on the southbound deck on the I-95 Girard Point Bridge between Broad Street (Route 611) and Penrose Avenue (Route 291) for bridge repair; and
  • Monday, March 6, through Wednesday, March 8, from 7:30 PM to 5:00 AM the following morning, lane closures will be in place on the ramp from Aramingo Avenue to southbound I-95 between the Bridge Street/Harbison Avenue (Exit 27) and Betsy Ross Bridge (Exit 26) interchanges for expansion joint repair on southbound I-95.

Drivers are 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.
