Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work areas because significant backups and delays will occur. All scheduled activities are weather dependent.

Work on these operations will be in accordance with Centers for Disease Control and state Department of Health guidance as well as a project-specific COVID-19 safety plan, which will include protocols for social distancing, use of face coverings, personal and job-site cleaning protocols, management of entries to the jobsite, special signage and relevant training.

The soil borings are part of advance engineering activities underway for upcoming reconstruction of I-95 at the northern end of the Bridge Street Interchange, including the Bridge Street Interchange ramps in Philadelphia.

The paving and concrete patching operations are part of a project to rehabilitate pavement and repair 15 structures on more than 11 miles of the interstate in Lower Chichester, Upper Chichester, Chester, Ridley and Tinicum townships, the City of Chester and Upland and Ridley Park boroughs, Delaware County.

The bridge painting is part of a project to rehabilitate eight bridges over I-95 and CSX Railroad in the City of Chester, Delaware County.
