Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work areas because significant backups and delays will occur. All scheduled activities are weather-dependent.

The bridge construction is part of the project to reconstruct I-95 at the northern end of the Bridge Street Interchange.

The saw cutting, grading and concrete patching operations are part of a project to rehabilitate pavement and repair 15 structures on more than 11 miles of I-95 in Lower Chichester, Upper Chichester, Chester, Ridley and Tinicum townships, the City of Chester and Upland and Ridley Park boroughs, Delaware County.
