King of Prussia, PA – Southbound Interstate 95 motorists in Bucks County will encounter a double lane closure between the Route 413 (Bristol) and Academy Road interchanges in Bristol and Bensalem townships, Bucks County on Monday, October 14, through Friday, October 18, from 7:00 PM to 5:00 AM the following morning for line striping and pavement marker installation, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today.
Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling on southbound I-95 in the work area because backups and delays are expected. All operations are weather dependent and subject to change.
The work is part of a project to repair and resurface 13 miles of I-95 and I-295 in Bensalem, Bristol, Middletown and Lower Makefield townships. The entire project is expected to be completed this fall.
