MOTORISTS WILL experience delays beginning Monday as the next phase of a $900 million project to repair three miles of Interstate 95 gets underway.
The plan, the largest in PennDOT's history, calls for rebuilding the Girard Avenue Interchange to widen the highway to four lanes of traffic in each direction by 2025.
In this phase of the project, Delaware Avenue, between Columbia and Aramingo avenues, will be reconstructed and repairs will be made to several bridges. This portion of the project is expected to cost $211.7 million.
"This [project] will create a modern highway and move more efficiently," said Lester Toaso, PennDOT District 6 executive.
