Bridge Repairs Planned Next Week on I-295 in Lower Bucks
The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation announced last week that regional bridge repairs will continue next week on Interstate 295 in Lower Bucks County under a bridge improvement project to perform high-priority repairs on several structures on I-295, Interstate 95 and Interstate 476.
Motorists are advised of the following travel restriction:
- Wednesday, November 30, through Saturday, December 3, from 8:00 AM to 3:30 PM and from 7:30 PM to 5:00 AM the following morning, a single lane closure is scheduled on eastbound and/or westbound I-295 between the Route 413 (Bristol) and Business U.S. 1/Route 413 (Penndel/Levittown) interchanges in Bristol and Middletown townships.
Drivers are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work area because backups and delays will occur. All scheduled activities are weather dependent.
Repairs to the structures under this project include replacing rocker bearings, frozen sliding plate bearings and deck expansion joints; cleaning and painting steel beams; repairing substructure concrete; and reconstructing bearing pedestals.
