Project at a Glance
Est Completion Date
Approximately $10 million
I-95/Route 54 traffic impacts
Sunday, Aug. 30-Friday, Sept. 4
No lane closures scheduled.
The speed limit on Interstate 95 in both directions has been reduced from 70 mph to 65 mph from mile marker 90 to mile marker 93 for the duration of the Route 54 bridge replacement project.
Route 54 travel:
Route 54 has been reduced to one 12-foot lane in each direction between Hill Carter Parkway and Mount Herman Road. Additionally, a temporary traffic signal has been installed at the interchange of I-95 north and Route 54 west to ease exiting interstate traffic congestion. For the duration of the project, the posted speed limit will be reduced to 35 mph. Drivers can expect delays, particularly during peak travel times.
The project will replace the Route 54 superstructure over Interstate 95 and approaches, as needed. The replacement will raise the vertical clearance on north and southbound I-95 to 16.5 feet.
