PHILADELPHIA, PA — Interstate 295 and Interstate 95 motorists in Bucks and Philadelphia counties will encounter lane closures next week for construction activities under a project to perform high-priority repairs on 13 structures on I-95, I-295 and Interstate 476 in Philadelphia, Bucks and Delaware counties, announced the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT).
The work schedule and locations are:
- Monday, May 2, through Friday, May 6, from 7:30 PM to 5:00 AM the following morning, a lane closure is scheduled on eastbound and/or westbound I-295 between the Route 413 (Bristol) and Business U.S. 1/Route 413 (Penndel/Levittown) interchanges in Bristol and Middletown townships, Bucks County for bridge repair; and
- Tuesday, May 3, through Friday, May 6, from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM, a lane closure is scheduled on the ramp from Bartram Avenue to southbound I-95 in Philadelphia for high mast light pole repair.
Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work areas because backups and delays will occur.
Repairs to the 13 structures include replacing rocker bearings, frozen sliding plate bearings and deck expansion joints; cleaning and painting steel beams; repairing substructure concrete; and reconstructing bearing pedestals.
In addition, the project includes the replacement of 24 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 $39.4 million project, which is financed with 100 percent federal funds. Construction is expected to finish in spring 2024.
