Nighttime lane closures are scheduled on northbound and southbound I-95 between the I-476 (Exit 7) and Route 352/Route 320 (Exit 6) in the City of Chester, on Monday, May 8, through Friday, May 12, from 10:00 PM to 5:00 AM, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced.
The Crosby Street pedestrian bridge over I-95 is currently the first bridge under construction. Due to nature of the bridge repairs, Crosby Street has been closed to pedestrians between 12th Street and 13th Street through July 2017. During the closure, pedestrians will be directed to use the Edgmont Avenue bridge to cross over I-95.
In addition to rehabilitating the Crosby Street bridge, PennDOT will rehabilitate and improve the multi-span, steel girder bridges on Potter Street, Madison Street, Upland Street, Melrose Avenue, Chestnut Street, Edgmont Avenue, and the Walnut Street pedestrian structure. The contractor will also improve the I-95 south exit ramp at Chestnut Street.
Each bridge will close during construction as will the I-95 south exit ramp at Chestnut Street when construction begins on that section. The department will not permit the contractor to close certain bridges simultaneously, and it will post detours to move motorists and pedestrians around the closed spans. Depending on the bridge under construction, lane restrictions will occur on I-95 weeknights from 10:00 PM to 5:00 AM the following morning, and on Saturdays and Sundays from 9:00 PM to 5:00 AM the following morning.
