King of Prussia, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today that regional bridge repairs will continue next week on Interstate 95 in Philadelphia and Interstate 295 in Bucks County under a $44.6 million improvement project to perform high-priority repairs on several structures on I-95, I-295, and Interstate 476 in Philadelphia, Bucks, and Delaware counties.
Motorists are advised of the following travel restrictions:
- From 7:30 PM Friday, June 9, to 11:59 PM Saturday, June 10, the ramp from Aramingo Avenue to southbound I-95 will be closed and detoured for expansion joint repair on the southbound I-95 ramps. Motorists will be directed to follow the posted detour route;
- Monday, June 12, and Tuesday, June 13, from 7:30 PM to 5:00 AM the following morning, a single lane closure is scheduled on eastbound and/or westbound I-295 between the Route 413 (Bristol) and Business U.S. 1/Route 413 (Penndel/Levittown) interchanges in Bristol and Middletown townships for rumble strip and delineator installations; and
- Thursday, June 15, from 7:30 PM to 5:00 AM the following morning, a single lane closure is scheduled on northbound and southbound I-95 between South Street and the Broad Street Interchange (Route 611) for bridge railing repairs.
Drivers are advised to allow extra time when traveling through or near all the work areas 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.
