Traffic Alert: Crack Sealing Operations on I-676 to Cause Delays in Philadelphia

Traffic, flagging

PHILADELPHIA, PA — The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) today unveiled plans for crack sealing operations set to commence tonight on I-676 (Vine Street Expressway) in Philadelphia. This initiative forms part of a larger project encompassing crack sealing along 398 miles of state highways in Delaware and Philadelphia counties.

From Friday, May 17, through Thursday, May 23, motorists can expect moving lane closures on I-676 between the I-76 Interchange and the 21st Street overpass, with operations running from 8:00 PM to 6:00 AM each night. Drivers are urged to plan their journeys accordingly, as traffic backups and delays are anticipated due to the ongoing construction activities. It’s crucial to note that all planned operations are contingent on favorable weather conditions.

The $3.3 million project has been entrusted to Scodeller Construction, Inc. of Wixom, MI, serving as the general contractor for this undertaking financed entirely by state funds. PennDOT aims to not only improve the quality of transportation infrastructure but also ensure the safety and efficiency of roadways for all commuters.
