King of Prussia, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today that regional bridge repairs will continue this weekend and next weekend on Interstate 95 in the Bridesburg section of Philadelphia under a $44.6 million bridge improvement project to perform high-priority repairs on several structures on I-95, Interstate 476 and Interstate 295 in Philadelphia, Delaware and Bucks counties.
Motorists are advised of the following travel restriction:
- From 7:30 PM Friday, May 12, to 5:00 PM Sunday, May 14, the ramp from Aramingo Avenue to southbound I-95 will be closed and detoured for expansion joint repair on the southbound I-95 ramps; and
- From 7:30 PM Friday, May 19, to 5:00 PM Sunday, May 21, the ramp from Aramingo Avenue to southbound I-95 will be closed and detoured for expansion joint repair on the southbound I-95 ramps. During the closure, motorists will be directed to follow the posted detour routes.
Drivers are advised to allow extra time when traveling near the work area because backups and delays will occur. All scheduled activities are weather dependent.
Repairs to the structures under this project include replacing rocker bearings, frozen sliding plate bearings and deck expansion joints; cleaning and painting steel beams; repairing substructure concrete; and reconstructing bearing pedestals.
The project also includes the replacement of high mast light poles along the I-95 corridor in Philadelphia and Delaware counties.
Driscoll Construction Company, Inc. of Philadelphia is the general contractor on the project, which is financed with 100% federal funds.
