Revamping I-76: Nighttime Repairs and Lane Closures Next Week in Philadelphia

Lane Restrictions

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) has announced night-time pavement repairs next week on 5 miles of Interstate 76 in Philadelphia, including ramps and 23 bridges from U.S. 1 South to Interstate 676. The $36.8 million project is part of a resurfacing and repair initiative.

Note that drivers should expect lane closures from 9:00 PM to 4:00 AM (May 15-19) throughout several sections of I-76, from exit 339 to exit 343. Due to potential backups and delays, it’s recommended to allow extra travel time. Keep in mind that the project schedule may be impacted by weather.

PennDOT has enlisted H&K Group, Inc. of Skippack, PA to undertake a comprehensive project. This includes milling and overlaying both directions of I-76 (Schuylkill Expressway). Additionally, repairs to the concrete base, shoulder, and barrier, sign replacement and new pavement markings will form part of the enhancements. Minor grade adjustments will be carried out at certain locations to existing inlets, and bridge repairs will also be conducted.

The entire program is slated for completion sometime late in 2024 and is financed by 100% federal funds.
