PHILADELPHIA, PA — Interstate 95 motorists in Philadelphia counties will encounter lane and ramp restrictions next week for bridge and high mast light pole repair under a project to perform high-priority repairs on 13 structures on I-95, Interstate 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 9, through Monday, June 13, from 7:00 PM to 6:00 AM the following morning, a weeknight lane closure is scheduled on I-95 in both directions between Broad Street (Route 611) and South Street for bridge repair; and
- Tuesday, May 10, through Thursday, May 12, from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM, a lane closure is scheduled on the ramp from Bartram Avenue to southbound I-95 for high mast light pole repair.
Motorists are being 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.
