Night Paving Operations to Impact I-76 in Philadelphia

Traffic Alert

PHILADELPHIA, PA — The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) has unveiled plans for nighttime paving on Interstate 76 (Schuylkill Expressway) in Philadelphia as part of a $36.8 million project to revamp nearly five miles of the interstate, various ramps, and over 20 bridges.

From May 20 to May 23, lane closures will affect eastbound I-76 between Belmonte Avenue and Montgomery Drive interchanges in the late hours. Additionally, shoulder closures will be implemented on sections of eastbound I-76 between U.S. 1 South (City Avenue) and Girard Avenue interchanges during daytime hours for infrastructure work.

“Motorists should anticipate potential traffic disruptions and plan accordingly,” emphasized a PennDOT spokesperson. “Delays are possible due to the ongoing construction activities.”

This extensive project encompasses resurfacing, concrete repairs, grade adjustments, sign replacements, and bridge maintenance along I-76. Weather permitting, the contractor will undertake a series of critical improvements aimed at enhancing the safety and efficiency of this vital roadway segment.
