Nighttime Lane Closures on I-95 for Core Borings, Expect Delays

Traffic, lane closed

PHILADELPHIA, PA — The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced that core borings are scheduled at night next week on Interstate 95 in Northeast Philadelphia. This work is part of the design phase for PennDOT’s upcoming I-95/AF3 project aimed at reconstructing northbound I-95 and its structures between Ann Street and Wheatsheaf Lane. Construction on Section AF3 is tentatively set for 2025.

From Monday, June 17, through Wednesday, June 19, a left lane closure will be in place on northbound I-95 between the Allegheny Avenue and Betsy Ross Bridge interchanges. The closure will occur nightly from 8:00 PM to 5:00 AM the following morning.

In addition, from Tuesday, June 18, through Thursday, June 20, a right lane closure will affect southbound I-95 between the Betsy Ross Bridge and Allegheny Avenue interchanges. These closures will also run nightly from 8:00 PM to 5:00 AM the following morning.

Furthermore, on Wednesday, June 19, and Thursday, June 20, alternating lane closures will be implemented on northbound I-95 between the Cottman Avenue and Academy Road interchanges for line striping. These closures will take place from 10:00 PM to 5:00 AM the following morning.

Drivers should anticipate backups and delays when traveling through these areas and are advised to allow extra time. All scheduled activities depend on weather conditions.

The line striping is part of a $24.1 million project to upgrade Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) components across the Philadelphia region. These improvements will help PennDOT’s Regional Traffic Management Center monitor travel conditions and provide real-time information to motorists.
