PHILADELPHIA, PA — A left lane closure is scheduled on westbound Interstate 76 between the Girard Avenue and Montgomery Drive interchanges in Philadelphia, on Tuesday, July 6, through Friday, July 9, from 9:00 PM to 5:00 AM the following morning for milling and paving operations under a project to improve travel and safety on the Schuylkill Expressway in Philadelphia, announced the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT).

Motorists 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.

Under this project, milling and paving will take place on I-76 in both directions between the Montgomery Drive and Girard Avenue/U.S. 13 interchanges, as well as portions of the Montgomery Drive interchange ramps. Most of the paving will occur overnight. The deteriorating concrete median barrier will also be replaced, and high-friction surface treatment will be installed in select areas along I-76 to improve safety during inclement weather.

Milling and paving operations, as well as guide rail and concrete median replacements, will also occur on Route 82 (Manor Road/1st Street) in the City of Coatesville and Valley Township, Chester County. In addition, PennDOT’s contractor will reconfigure the Wagontown Road and Route 82 (Manor Road/1st Street) intersection to require vehicles to stop prior to entering Route 82 (Manor Road1st Street).

Road-Con, Inc. of West Chester, Chester County, is the general contractor on the $3,265,646 project which is financed with 100 percent federal funds. The entire project is expected to be completed this fall.
