PennDOT announces double lane closures scheduled for I-95

I-95 will see closures in southbound lanes through Friday.

Double lane closures are scheduled on southbound Interstate 95 from just south of the Cottman Avenue interchange to the Allegheny Avenue interchange through Friday, July 27, from 7 p.m. to 5 a.m. for construction activities on a project to repair and resurface deteriorated sections on a 7-mile portion of northbound and southbound I-95 between Cottman and Interstate 676.

PennDOT said the resurfacing operations are expected to be completed in October.

The work on I-95 was added to a recent contract to repair and resurface 12 miles of the outer, local lanes of Roosevelt Boulevard between 9th Street and the Bucks County line.

H&K Group Inc., of Skippack, Montgomery County, is the general contractor on the $11 million project, which is financed with state funds from Act 89, Pennsylvania’s Transportation Plan. ••
