DELAWARE COUNTY, PA — Interstate 95 motorists will encounter single and double lane closures in both directions next week at several locations between the Route 452 (Market Street) and Route 352/320 (Edgmont Avenue) interchanges for various construction activities under 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, announced the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT).
The work schedule is:
- Monday, October 11, through Thursday, October 14, from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM and from 5:00 AM to 6:00 AM, a single lane closure will be in place in sections on northbound and southbound I-95;

- Friday, October 15, from 9:00 PM to 6:00 AM the following morning, a double lane closure will be in place in sections on northbound and southbound I-95.
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.
Under this project, PennDOT states its contractor will mill, overlay and rehabilitate the existing concrete pavement including 41 ramps; perform minor structural repairs to 15 of the 33 bridges located in the project limits; repair sections of median barrier; upgrade guide rail; install new pavement markings, delineators and rumble strips; repair and clean existing inlets and pipes; and replace damaged or missing traffic signs. The Pennsylvania Welcome Center just north of the Delaware state line also will be improved with concrete base repairs and new parking stripes, pavement markings and signs.
Allan A. Myers, Inc. of Worcester, Montgomery County is the general contractor on the $68.4 million project, which is financed with 80 percent federal and 20 percent state funds. The entire project is expected to be completed in late 2023.
