I-95 Single, Double Lane Closures for Resurfacing Operations in Delaware County

Posted on August 27, 2020

Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) has announced that Interstate 95 motorists will encounter daytime and nighttime single and double lane closures in both directions at various locations between the U.S. 322 Interchange and the Delaware state line for milling, paving, sealing and saw cutting 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, Delaware County.

The work schedule is:

  • Friday, August 28, from 7:00 PM to 7:00 AM, single and double lane closures will be in place on southbound I-95;
  • Saturday, August 29, from 7:00 AM to 10:00 AM, a single lane closure will be in place on southbound I-95.
  • Saturday, August 29, from 7:00 PM to 7:00 AM, single and double lane closures will be in place on southbound I-95; and
  • Sunday, August 30, from 7:00 AM to 11:00 AM, a single lane closure will be in place on southbound I-95.

I-95 motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work area 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 $68.4 million project which is financed with 80 percent federal and 20 percent state funds. The entire project is expected to be completed in late 2023.
