  • Monday, January 23, through Wednesday, January 25, from 7:00 PM to 6:00 AM the following morning, lane closures are planned on northbound I-95 between the Route 611 North (Exit 17) and Columbus Boulevard/Washington Avenue interchanges (Exit 20) in Philadelphia; and
  • Wednesday, January 25, through Saturday, January 28, from 7:30 PM to 5:30 AM the following morning, lane closures are planned on the ramp from northbound I-95 to northbound I-476 (Exit 7) in Ridley Township, Delaware County.

Drivers are being advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work area 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.
