The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today that I-95 construction activities will be performed continuously this weekend and at night next week 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 restrictions:

  • From 7:00 PM Friday, May 5, to 5:00 AM Monday, May 8, left lane closures will be in place on southbound I-95 between the Ridley Park (Exit 8) and the Route 320/352 interchanges (Exit 6) for expansion dam replacement; and
  • Monday, May 8, through Friday, May 12, 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 sections of northbound and southbound I-95 between the Philadelphia International Airport Interchange (Exit 12) and the Ridley Park Interchange (Exit 8) for deck repair, line striping and guiderail, shielding and rumble strip installations.

Drivers are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work areas because significant backups and delays will occur. All scheduled activities are weather dependent and subject to change.

Under this I-95 construction 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.
