Core Borings, Barrier Installation Planned at Night Next Week on I-95 in Philadelphia


King of Prussia, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today that roadway construction will occur at night next week on Interstate 95 in Philadelphia.

Drivers are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work areas because backups and delays will occur. All scheduled activities are weather dependent.

The barrier placement is part of PennDOT's $268 million I-95 Section BS2 project to reconstruct I-95 in both directions between Margaret Street and the relocated Carver Street.

The core borings are part of PennDOT's upcoming I-95/GR6 project to reconstruct southbound I-95 between Frankford Avenue and the I-676/Vine Street Expressway.
