I-95 Overnight Lane Closures Scheduled Next Week for Bridge Repair and Patching in Bucks County

04/19/2018

King of Prussia, PA – Northbound and southbound Interstate 95 will be reduced to a single right lane between the Route 132 (Street Road) and Route 413 (Bristol) interchanges on Monday, April 23, through Friday, April 27, from 7:00 PM to 5:00 AM, for bridge deck repair, patching and milling 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 I-95 in the work area because significant 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.
 
James J. Anderson Construction Company, Inc. of Philadelphia is the general contractor on the $29,633,134 project, which is financed with 80 percent federal and 20 percent state funds.
