Backups, Delays Expected for I-95 Construction Next Week in Pennsylvania

Double lane closures are scheduled on southbound Interstate 95 between the Route 413 (Bristol) and Route 132 (Street Road) interchanges on Monday, April 9, through Friday, April 13, from 7:00 PM to 5:00 AM, for bridge deck repair and patching operations as part of a project to repair and resurface 13 miles of I-95 in Bensalem, Bristol, Middletown and Lower Makefield townships, Bucks County.

Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling on southbound I-95 in the work area because backups and delays will occur. The contractor’s schedule is weather dependent.

Under this improvement project, PennDOT is milling, overlaying and rehabilitating existing pavement; performing base repairs; installing new guide rail; repairing or replacing damaged traffic signs; performing minor bridge deck repairs; and installing rumble strips and delineators along the I-95 corridor in Bucks County. The entire project is scheduled to be completed in the fall.

Pennsylvania DOT Reduces Speed Limit on I-95 During Winter Storm

Due to the severity of the winter storm, PennDOT is temporarily reducing the speed limit on I-95 as well as several other roadways in the region.

PennDOT is urging motorists to avoid unnecessary travel but those who must head out will see speeds reduced to 45 mph on the following highways:

  • Interstates 76, 95, 476, 676;
  • U.S. Routes 1, 30, 202, 422; and
  • State Routes 63, 100 Spur and 309.

Although PennDOT crews have been treating roadways, the department’s primary goal is to keep roads passable, not completely free of ice and snow. PennDOT will continue to treat roadways throughout the storm until precipitation stops and roads are clear.

The department asks motorists to allow plenty of space when driving near plow trucks. Also, for their own safety and the safety of plow operators, motorists should never attempt to pass a truck while it is plowing or spreading winter materials.

PennDOT reminds motorists to pack an emergency kit for their vehicles. A basic kit should include non-perishable food, water, blanket, small shovel and warm clothes. When preparing an emergency kit, motorists should take into account special needs of passengers such as baby food, pet supplies or medications and pack accordingly.
