PennDOT announces lane closures on northbound and southbound I-95

Lane closures are scheduled through Thursday, and a ramp will be closed Friday night.

PennDOT announced lane closures are scheduled through Thursday morning on two stretches of I-95, while a ramp will be closed Friday night through Saturday morning.

Intermittent lane closures are scheduled on both northbound and southbound I-95 between the Allegheny Avenue and Bridge Street interchanges, for line striping, on Wednesday, Oct. 25, at 8 p.m. through 5 o’clock the following morning.

At the same time, there will be intermittent lane closures on the ramp from southbound I-95 to the Betsy Ross Bridge and Aramingo Avenue interchanges, for line striping.

On Friday, Oct. 27, from 8 p.m. until 5 o’clock the following morning, the ramp from southbound I-95 to Bleigh Avenue at the Cottman Avenue (Route 73) interchange will be closed for resurfacing. Motorists will be directed to use the Academy Road interchange, follow the ramp to Torresdale Avenue, turn left onto Torresdale Avenue, turn right onto Linden Avenue and right onto State Road.

The work is part of the $212 million project to widen and reconstruct I-95 at the Cottman Avenue interchange, and the $160.2 million project to rebuild ramps and improve connections at the Betsy Ross Bridge/Aramingo Avenue interchange.

All scheduled activities are weather dependent. Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling in the work areas because backups and delays will occur during construction. ••
