Around-the-Clock Single-Lane Travel Restriction Scheduled Next Week For I-295 WB Approaching the Newtown/Yardley Interchange (Exit 8)
I-295 WB will be restricted to a single-travel lane for up to four days next week – weather permitting -- in the vicinity of the PA Route 332/Yardley-Newtown Road interchange (Exit 8). Closures are scheduled to begin 10 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 25. Upon implementation during the overnight hours, the single-lane travel pattern (instead of the normal two lanes) is expected to remain in place without interruption until 3 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 29.
Travel delays are possible at any time, but severe congestion and delays are likeliest during weekday evening commuting periods Monday through Wednesday. Motorists should plan to adjust their driving schedules, allow additional time to reach their destinations, or plan alternate routes.
The single-lane pattern is need to allow for a “high-intensity construction cycle” (HICC) involving excavation, milling and paving work on a section of I-295 WB between Quarry Road and the Newtown-Yardley exit in Lower Makefield, PA.
