U.S. 13 and Interstate 95 motorists may have noticed new traffic signs at the interchange in Bristol Township. PennDOT will be announced the changes are due to reconstruction, realignment and bridge replacement.
This is part of the PA Turnpike’s I-95 interchange project designed to improve PennDOT’s recently completed work along a 4.3-mile stretch of U.S. 13 between 413 and the Turnpike.
As of Monday, motorists in the area may have seen an electronic message board warning them of new traffic patterns. The new traffic pattern will begin Wednesday, Dec. 11.
Crews will take two days to construct and open new ramps with a new traffic signal.
“Northbound U.S. 13 (Bristol Pike) motorists will make a left at the signal to access I-95, while southbound U.S. 13 (Bristol Pike) motorists will make a right at the signal to access I-95,” PennDOT said in a statement.
This is expected to last through the early part of summer 2020.
In addition to the new pattern, starting on Wednesday, December 11, U.S. 13 thru traffic will be reduced to a single lane in each direction through the signalized intersection area through early summer 2020.
Drivers are encouraged to give themselves extra time when heading that way due to traffic backups and delays that will occur.
