Penn DOT announced Monday that construction will begin next week, June 8, on the project to perform high-priority repairs on I-295 in Lower Bucks county.
Repairs to these structures includes replacing rocker bearings, frozen sliding plate bearings and deck expansion joints; cleaning and painting steel beams; repairing substructure concrete; and reconstructing bearing pedestals.
Work is to be preformed on the following:
- I-295 over the Pennsylvania Turnpike (Northbound) in Bristol Township;
- I-295 over the Pennsylvania Turnpike (Southbound) in Bristol Township; and
- Trenton Road over I-295 in Middletown Township.
Most construction activities under this project will take place during off-peak hours. All travel lanes on I-95 must be open to traffic during the morning and afternoon rush hours. This project will also include several ramp detours when work takes place on the ramp structures beginning Monday, June 8th, 6 p.m. to 8 a.m.
Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work areas because backups and delays will occur. All scheduled activities are weather dependent.
