Nighttime Paving on I-476 to Cause Lane Closures, Expect Delays

Traffic Advisory

SOUTHEASTERN PENNSYLVANIA, PA — The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced that paving and guiderail replacement will take place next week on Interstate 476. This work is part of a $63.7 million project to resurface, repair, and improve nearly 17 miles of the interstate, from the I-76 (Schuylkill Expressway) in West Conshohocken, Montgomery County, to I-95 in Ridley Township, Delaware County.

From Monday, June 17, through Friday, June 21, lane closures will be in effect from 8:00 PM to 5:00 AM the following morning on sections of both northbound and southbound I-476 between the I-76 and I-95 interchanges. Motorists should anticipate backups and delays and are advised to allow extra time for travel through these work areas. All activities are weather dependent.

Under this project, PennDOT’s contractor will mill and overlay travel lanes and shoulders in both directions. The project will also involve repairs on 49 structures, improvements to 21 stormwater management basins to address rock slope stabilization issues, and repairs to existing sound walls. Additionally, the project includes replacing inlets at select locations and installing new pavement markings, delineators, rumble strips, signage, and guiderail.

The aim is to extend the design life and improve ride quality and safety of the interstate while enhancing the condition of roadside elements such as stormwater basins, drainage inlets, slope stabilization, guiderail, and signs.

H&K Group, Inc. of Skippack, PA, is the general contractor for this project, which is financed entirely with federal funds. Physical construction is expected to be completed by late 2025.
