Interstate 95 lane closures will be in place over the next two weeks at two locations in Philadelphia for engineering activities related to future construction on the interstate, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today.
The work schedule and locations are:
- Tuesday, August 10, through Friday, August 13, and Monday, August 16, through Friday, August 20, from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM, northbound and southbound lane closures will be in place at the Bridge Street Interchange south of the existing work zone for soil borings; and
- Monday, August 16, from 9:00 PM to 1:00 AM the following morning, northbound and southbound single lane closures will be in place between Interstate 676 and Columbus Boulevard for lighting measurements in the recessed section of the interstate.
