Major Bridge Repairs Underway: What You Need to Know Before Driving on I-95

Travel Restrictions

PennDOT has announced the continuation of bridge repairs on I-95 in Philadelphia as part of a $44.6 million improvement project. The ongoing repairs are critical and will span several structures on I-95, I-476, and I-295 in Philadelphia, Bucks, and Delaware counties.

Over the weekends of May 12 and May 19, the ramp from Aramingo Avenue to southbound I-95 will be closed for expansion joint repair, necessitating the need for detours. Be prepared for delays if you’re driving in this area during both weekends. Remember that these repairs are subject to the weather.

The project involves replacing various structural components, such as broken rocker bearings, frozen sliding plate bearings, and deck expansion joints. Additionally, it includes repairing concrete substructures, cleaning and painting steel beams, and rebuilding bearing pedestals.

Moreover, there is a plan to replace high mast light poles across the I-95 corridor in Philadelphia and Delaware counties. The project is being executed by Driscoll Construction Company, Inc. of Philadelphia and funded entirely by federal funds.
