Single and double lane closures are scheduled at night next week on Interstate 95 in Delaware County between the Highland Avenue (Exit 3) and Interstate 476 interchanges for various construction activities under a project to rehabilitate pavement and repair 15 structures on more than 11 miles of the interstate in Lower Chichester, Upper Chichester, Chester, Ridley and Tinicum townships, the City of Chester and Upland and Ridley Park boroughs, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced.

The work schedule is:

  • Monday, May 2, through Thursday, May 5, from 7:00 PM to 6:00 AM the following morning, a single lane closure will be in place on sections of northbound and southbound I-95;
  • Monday, May 2, through Thursday, May 5, from 9:00 PM to 5:00 AM the following morning, a double lane closure will be in place on sections of northbound and southbound I-95;
  • Friday, May 6, and Saturday, May 7, from 7:00 PM to 7:00 AM the following morning, a single lane closure will be in place on sections of northbound and southbound I-95; and
  • Friday, May 6, and Saturday, May 7, from 9:00 PM to 7:00 AM the following morning, a double lane closure will be in place on sections of northbound and southbound I-95.

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

Under this project, PennDOT’s contractor will mill, overlay and rehabilitate the existing concrete pavement including 41 ramps; perform minor structural repairs to 15 of the 33 bridges located in the project limits; repair sections of median barrier; upgrade guide rail; install new pavement markings, delineators and rumble strips; repair and clean existing inlets and pipes; and replace damaged or missing traffic signs. The Pennsylvania Welcome Center just north of the Delaware state line also will be improved with concrete base repairs and new parking stripes, pavement markings and signs.

Allan A. Myers, Inc. of Worcester, Montgomery County is the general contractor on the $73 million project, which is financed with 80 percent federal and 20 percent state funds. The entire project is expected to be completed in summer 2024.
