The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced that a new traffic pattern will be established Thursday night, August 10 and next Monday night, August 14, on northbound Interstate 95 in Delaware County under an $80.6 million project to rehabilitate pavement and several bridges 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.
Motorists are advised of the following travel restriction:
- Thursday, August 10, and Monday, August 14, a single lane closure will be in place from 7:00 PM to 6:00 AM, followed by a double lane closure from 9:00 PM to 5:00 AM on northbound I-95 between the Route 420 (Exit 9A-B) and Philadelphia International Airport interchanges (Exit 12).
I-95 motorists are reminded that the ramp from Route 291 (Bartram Avenue) to southbound I-95 in Philadelphia remains closed and detoured 24/7 through Wednesday, September 6, for expansion dam replacements. Motorists will continue to follow the posted detour routes.
Drivers are advised to allow extra time when traveling through or near the work areas because significant backups and delays will occur. All scheduled activities are weather dependent and subject to change.
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.
