The existing bridge carrying Hulmeville Road over the PA Turnpike Mainline is being replaced in order to accommodate the future widening for the I-95/I-276 Interchange Project. The project involves the removal of an existing 3-span steel girder bridge, which will be replaced with a 2-span precast concrete beam bridge. The new bridge will consist of two 12-foot lanes with 8-foot shoulders, a 12-foot left turning lane and 5-foot wide sidewalk adjacent to the southbound lanes. The project also involves various utility installations across the bridge, drainage modifications, a new signalized intersection and bituminous paving of the bridge approaches.
The bridge will be built in two stages so that traffic can be maintained in each direction during construction. In order to maintain traffic in both directions the existing left turn lane from southbound Hulmeville Road onto Gibson Road will not be permitted during the new bridge construction.
The Notice To Proceed was August 2016. The duration of the project is over two and half (2 ½) years with construction completing by May 2019.
September 2018 project completed.
