Lane Closures Planned for I-95 Construction in Philadelphia

Lane closures are planned on northbound Interstate 95 between the Washington Avenue/Columbus Boulevard (Exit 20) and Interstate 676/U.S. 30 interchanges (Exit 22) in Philadelphia, over the next two Thursdays through Saturdays, to the replacement of a deteriorated section of concrete, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced.

I-95 construction crews will work the next two weekends to remove and replace a 58-foot wide by 16-foot long section of concrete pavement on I-95 north. Motorists are advised to use an alternate route or allow more time for travel on I-95 north because backups will occur during construction.
