PennDOT reports that interstate 76 motorists will face overnight lane closures in both directions between the U.S. 202 and U.S. 1 (City Avenue) interchanges on Sunday, April 29th through Thursday, May 3rd, from 9:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m. the following morning.
The closures are for various construction activities on a project to repair and resurface 12.5 miles of the expressway in Upper Merion Township, West Conshohocken Borough and Lower Merion Township.
Motorists are advised to use an alternate route or allow extra time when traveling on I-76 in the work area because significant backups and delays will occur. All scheduled activities are weather dependent.
Under this improvement project, PennDOT is milling, overlaying and rehabilitating existing pavement; performing base repairs; installing new guide rail; repairing or replacing damaged traffic signs, two overhead sign structures and numerous expansion joints on three structures; and installing rumble strips, delineators and new mileage markers along the four-lane section of I-76.
