PHILADELPHIA, PA — The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced that nighttime milling and paving operations will occur on westbound Interstate 76 (Schuylkill Expressway) in Philadelphia. This work is part of a $36.8 million project aimed at resurfacing and repairing nearly five miles of the interstate, including its ramps and over 20 bridges.

From Monday, June 24, through Friday, June 28, a single lane closure will be in place each night from 9:00 PM to 6:00 AM on westbound I-76. The affected section stretches between the Montgomery Drive and U.S. 1 South (City Avenue) interchanges.

Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work area, as backups and delays may occur. The schedule is weather dependent.

This extensive project includes milling and overlaying the pavement from U.S. 1 South (City Avenue) to the Vine Street Expressway, as well as performing concrete base, shoulder, and barrier repairs. The project also involves adjusting grades for existing inlets, replacing damaged signs, installing new pavement markings, delineators, and rumble strips, and executing bridge repairs.
