PHILADELPHIA, PA — Northbound and southbound Interstate 95 motorists will encounter a single lane closure between 26th Street and Christian Street in Philadelphia beginning Monday, September 20, for bridge 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 single lane closures will be in place weeknights from 7:00 PM to 6:00 AM the following morning through Tuesday, November 30.
Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work areas because backups and delays will occur. All scheduled activities are weather-dependent.
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 $33.9 million project, which is financed with 100 percent federal funds. Construction is expected to finish in late 2023.
Motorists can check current road conditions by visiting the MyChesCo Traffic Center.
