The scope of project-related travel restrictions will abate slightly next week as construction crews move closer to completing the long-term traffic patterns that are expected to be fully implemented later this month along the Pennsylvania I-95 segment between the current bridge and the Rte. 332/Newtown/Yardley interchange (Exit 49).
The following travel restrictions are scheduled for the 4.4-mile-long project area during the week of July 9:
- I-95 south PA – Single-lane pattern from the Scudder Falls Bridge to the Rte. 332/Newtown-Yardley interchange (Exit 49), 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday, July 10; AND 8 p.m. to 2 p.m. (following day) Monday, July 10, through Saturday, July 15. (Note: Uninterrupted southbound traffic shift was scheduled to take effect overnight Friday, July 7; if not implemented, southbound traffic shift would be rescheduled for Tuesday, July 11.)
- I-95 north PA — Single-lane travel pattern from the Rte. 332/Newtown-Yardley interchange (Exit 49) to the Scudder Falls Bridge 10 a.m. to 5 a.m. (following day) Monday, July 10, through Saturday, July 15.
- River Road/Route 32, Lower Makefield, PA upstream of the Scudder Falls Bridge – briefduration alternating single-lane travel patterns with flaggers 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday, July 10, to Saturday, July 15.
New Jersey side
- Route 175/River Road – alternating single-lane traffic pattern controlled by flaggers daytime and early evenings 6 a.m. to 10 p.m., and full closures in vicinity of I-95 overpass 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. (following day) Monday, July 10, through Saturday, July 15. Note: Onramp to I-95 will be inaccessible during the overnight closure periods; affected motorists should follow posted detour routes.
The scheduled travel restrictions are subject to change due to weather, emergency, traffic, and project mobilization considerations.
Motorists are urged to reduce speeds and exercise caution when traveling through active work zones.
Due to changing travel patterns, narrower lane configurations and possible traffic queuing at some locations, motorists are encouraged to allow extra time to reach their destinations when traveling I-95 through the project work zone.
