Motorists using 95 North in Philadelphia should expect delays at night next week for construction between the Girard Avenue and Allegheny Avenue interchanges.
Median area work will occur over the next few weeks as part of early-stage construction on a $211.7 million contract to rebuild and improve 1.5 miles of northbound I-95 between the Girard Avenue and Allegheny Avenue interchanges, PennDOT announced Friday.
Crews will close the northbound far left lane between Columbia Avenue, at the northern end of the existing work zone traffic pattern, and Allegheny Avenue on Sunday through Thursday (May 11 to 15) from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m.
Construction on Tuesday night (May 13) will be delayed until 11p.m. to accommodate an expected increase in northbound volume from vehicles leaving the Phillies game. All scheduled activities are weather dependent, PennDOT said.
PennDOT advises drivers to allow extra time for travel through the area and to remain alert for backups entering the work zone.
The work is part of the fourth of six contracts to rebuild and improve the I-95/Girard Avenue Interchange and three miles of I-95 from Race Street to just south of Allegheny Avenue.
