Traffic Impacts

I-95 travel:

The speed limit on Interstate 95 in both directions was 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 was reduced to one 12-foot lane in each direction between Hill Carter Parkway and Mount Herman Road. Additionally, a temporary traffic signal was 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 was reduced to 35 mph.

Project description

The project replaced the Route 54 superstructure over Interstate 95 and approaches, as needed. The replacement raised the vertical clearance on north and southbound I-95 to 16.5 feet.
