King of Prussia, PA – Interstate 95 motorists will encounter single and double lane closures next week in both directions between the Academy Road and Route 332 (Newtown Yardley) interchanges for bridge deck repair, patching and paving 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.
The work schedule is:
• Monday, May 21, through Thursday, May 24, from 7:00 PM to 5:00 AM, double lane closures will be in place on northbound I-95 between the Route 132 (Street Road) and Route 413 (Bristol) interchanges;
• Monday, May 21, through Thursday, May 24, from 7:00 PM to 5:00 AM, a single right lane closure will be in place on northbound I-95 between the Route 413 (Bristol) and Route 332 (Newtown Yardley) interchanges; and
• Monday, May 21, through Thursday, May 24, from 7:00 PM to 5:00 AM, double lane closures will be in place on northbound I-95 from just north of the Academy Road Interchange to the Route 132 (Street Road) Interchange.
In addition to the overnight lane closures, a center lane closure will remain in place through late May on northbound I-95 between Route 132 (Street Road) and the Neshaminy Creek Bridge.
Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling on I-95 in the work areas 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.
