Nighttime Resurfacing on I-76 to Cause Lane Closures and Delays

Interstate 76

PHILADELPHIA, PA — The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced that resurfacing and guiderail installation will take place at night next week on the eastbound Schuylkill Expressway (I-76). This is part of a $36.8 million project aimed at improving nearly five miles of the interstate, including ramps and over 20 bridges.

From Monday, June 3, through Thursday, June 6, lane closures will occur from 8:00 PM to 5:00 AM between the U.S. 1 South (City Avenue) and Spring Garden Street interchanges. Additional lane closures will be in place from 8:00 PM to 6:00 AM on Friday, June 7, and Saturday, June 8.

Motorists should plan for extra travel time through these areas as backups and delays are expected. All scheduled activities depend on weather conditions.

The project involves milling and overlaying pavement from U.S. 1 South (City Avenue) to Interstate 676 (Vine Street Expressway). Crews will also repair and replace concrete bases, shoulders, and barriers, make minor grade adjustments to existing inlets, replace damaged signs, and install new pavement markings, delineators, and rumble strips. Bridge repairs are also included.

This effort aims to enhance the safety and functionality of one of Philadelphia’s busiest highways. Commuters should stay informed about construction updates and adjust travel plans accordingly.
