PennDOT announced the continuation of regional bridge repairs along I-95 in the Bridesburg section of Philadelphia. The project, funded at $44.6 million, aims to perform high-priority repairs on numerous structures along I-95, Interstate 476, and Interstate 295 extending across Philadelphia, Delaware, and Bucks counties.

Starting at 7:30 PM on Friday, May 19, through 5:00 PM on Sunday, May 21, the Southbound ramp from Aramingo Avenue to I-95 will be closed due to expansive joint repair work on the ramps. As an alternative, drivers will be directed to follow the posted detour routes.

Motorists are advised to allocate extra travel time when passing through the work zone as backlogs and holdups are likely. Please note that all scheduled activities are weather-dependent.

This project entails a range of building repairs including replacing rocker bearings, frozen sliding plate bearings, and deck expansion joints. It also involves substructure concrete repair, reconstruction of bearing pedestals, and the cleaning and painting of steel beams. The I-95 corridor in Philadelphia and Delaware counties will also see high mast light poles’ replacement as a part of this project.

The construction project is being headed by Driscoll Construction Company, Inc., located in Philadelphia. The project is being financed entirely with federal funding.
