Motorists traveling Interstate 95 in Delaware County will encounter single and double lane closures overnight between the Route 420 Interchange and the Delaware State line for median barrier repair, concrete patching and other 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, April 18, through Thursday, April 21, from 7:00 PM to 6:00 AM the following morning, single and double lane closures will be in place in sections on northbound and southbound I-95.
- Friday, April 22, and Saturday, April 23, from 7:00 PM to 7:00 AM the following morning, a single lane closure will be in place in sections on southbound I-95;
- Friday, April 22, from 7:00 PM to 7:00 AM the following morning, single and double lane closures will be in place in sections on northbound I-95; and
- Saturday, April 23, from 7:00 PM to 9:00 AM the following morning, single and double lane closures will be in place in sections on northbound 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.
The entire project is expected to be completed in summer 2024.
