I-95 Daytime, Nighttime Lane Closures Scheduled Next Week for Construction in Delaware County

King of Prussia, PA – Interstate 95 motorists will encounter daytime and nighttime single and double lane closures next week between the U.S. 322 Interchange and the Delaware state line in Delaware County for various construction activities under a project to rehabilitate pavement and repair 15 structures 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 boroughs, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today.

The work schedule is:

  • Tuesday, May 26, from 7:00 PM to 6:00 AM, a double right lane closure will be in place on southbound I-95;
  • Wednesday, May 27, and Saturday, May 30, from 6:00 AM to 6:00 PM, a single right lane closure is scheduled on southbound I-95;
  • Wednesday, May 27, through Friday, May 29, from 6:00 PM to 6:00 AM, a double right lane closure will be in place on southbound I-95;
  • Thursday, May 28, from 6:00 AM to 6:00 PM, a single right lane closure will be in place on northbound I-95; and
  • Saturday, May 30, from 6:00 PM to 11:00 AM, a double right lane closure will be in place on southbound I-95.

 

I-95 motorists 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.

 

Work on this project will be in accordance with Centers for Disease Control and state Department of Health guidance as well as a project-specific COVID-19 safety plan, which will include protocols for social distancing, use of face coverings, personal and job-site cleaning protocols, management of entries to the jobsite, special signage and relevant training.

 

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.

Allan A. Myers, Inc. of Worcester, Montgomery County is the general contractor on the $68,378,777 project which is financed with 80 percent federal and 20 percent state funds. The entire project is expected to be completed in late 2023.
