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.

Work on these operations will be in accordance with Centers for Disease Control and state Department of Health guidance as well as a project-specific COVID-19 safety plan, which will include protocols for social distancing, use of face coverings, personal and job-site cleaning protocols, management of entries to the jobsite, special signage and relevant training.

The overhead ramp is being replaced as part of the ongoing I-95 ramp replacement project at the Betsy Ross Bridge Interchange.

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

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