Nighttime Construction to Affect I-76 Traffic in Philadelphia, Expect Delays

Interstate 76

PHILADELPHIA, PA — The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced that nighttime construction on Interstate 76 (Schuylkill Expressway) will cause significant lane closures this weekend and next week. Motorists should prepare for potential traffic backups and delays.

On Saturday, June 8, from 9:00 PM to 6:00 AM, a double left lane closure will affect eastbound I-76 between the U.S. 1 South (City Avenue) and Spring Garden Street interchanges for temporary barrier installation.

On Sunday, June 9, from 9:00 PM to 5:00 AM, a double left lane closure will impact westbound I-76 between the I-676 (Vine Street Expressway) and Montgomery Drive interchanges for similar barrier installation.

From Monday, June 10, through Friday, June 14, nightly from 9:00 PM to 5:00 AM, lane closures will occur on both eastbound and westbound I-76 between the U.S. 1 South (City Avenue) and Girard Avenue interchanges. Crews will conduct milling, paving, and guiderail installation during these times.

PennDOT advises motorists to allow extra travel time when passing through these work areas due to expected traffic slowdowns. All scheduled activities are weather-dependent.

This construction is part of a larger project to enhance I-76 from U.S. 1 South (City Avenue) to the I-76 (Vine Street Expressway). The project includes milling and overlaying pavement, repairing concrete bases, shoulders, and barriers, adjusting inlet grades, replacing damaged signs, installing new pavement markings, delineators, and rumble strips, and performing bridge repairs.
