I-95, I-295 Overnight Lane Closures Next Week for Bridge Repair and Resurfacing Operations in Bucks County


King of Prussia, PA – Interstate 95 and Interstate 295 motorists will encounter single and double overnight lane closures next week between the Academy Road and Route 413 (Bristol) interchanges on Monday, August 13, through Friday, August 17, from 7:00 PM to 5:00 AM, for bridge deck repair, patching and paving operations as part of a project to repair and resurface 13 miles of I-95 and I-295 in Bensalem, Bristol, Middletown and Lower Makefield townships, Bucks County, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today. 

The work schedule is:
  • Double lane closures will be in place on northbound I-95 between the Academy Road and Route 132 (Street Road) interchanges for paving and bridge deck repair; and
  • A single left lane closure will be in place on westbound I-295 and southbound I-95 between the Route 413 (Bristol) and Academy Road interchanges, for subbase installation.
In addition, double lane closures will be in place on westbound I-295 and southbound I-95 between the Route 413 (Bristol) and Route 132 (Street Road) interchanges on Thursday, August 16, and Friday, August 17, from 7:00 PM to 5:00 AM, for milling operations. 

Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling on I-95 and I-295 in the work areas because significant backups and delays will occur. The contractor’s schedule is weather dependent.

Under this improvement project, PennDOT is milling, overlaying and rehabilitating existing pavement; performing base repairs; installing new guide rail; repairing or replacing damaged traffic signs; performing minor bridge deck repairs; and installing rumble strips and delineators along the I-95 and I-295 corridor in Bucks County. The entire project is scheduled to be completed this fall.

James J. Anderson Construction Company, Inc. of Philadelphia is the general contractor on the $29,633,134 project, which is financed with 80 percent federal and 20 percent state funds.
