The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today that work will continue at night next week on Interstate 95 in South Philadelphia under a project to perform high-priority repairs on several structures on interstates in Philadelphia, Delaware and Bucks counties.
Motorists are advised of the following travel restriction:
- Monday, November 6, through Friday, November 10, from 7:30 PM to 5:00 AM the following morning, lane closures are scheduled on northbound and southbound I-95 between the Girard Point Bridge and South StreetOpens In A New Window.
Drivers are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work area because backups and delays will occur. All scheduled activities are weather dependent.
Repairs to the structures under this project include replacing rocker bearings, frozen sliding plate bearings and deck expansion joints; cleaning and painting steel beams; repairing substructure concrete; and reconstructing bearing pedestals.
The project also includes the replacement of high mast light poles along the I-95 corridor in Philadelphia and Delaware counties.
