Motorists taking I-95 in Bristol Township, Middletown and Lower Makefield should be advised of possible lane closures overnight this week.

PennDOT officials said intermittent lane closures on northbound and southbound lanes will take place from New Falls Road in Bristol Township to the Newtown Exit as crews work to repair and resurface 13 miles of the highway.

“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; performing minor bridge deck repairs; and installing rumble strips and delineators along the I-95 corridor in Bucks County. The entire project is scheduled to be completed in fall 2018,” according to a PennDOT news release.

PennDOT hired contractor James J. Anderson Construction Company Inc. of Philadelphia to complete the $29.6 million project that is being paid for with 80 percent federal and 20 percent state funds.
