SR 0095, Section G4D – Interstate 95
Client: PennDOT, Engineering District 6-0
Location: Bristol Township, Bucks County, PA
Type/Size: New Southbound Exit Ramp and Other Interchange Improvements
Services: Highway Engineering
Conversion of the existing partial interchange to a full configuration by adding a ramp from southbound I-95 to SR 0413 was this project’s primary goal. PCS prepared a corridor and feasibility study that established the optimum ramp alignment.
The new 1.6 mile long ramp includes a new 459′ 3-span curved-steel girder bridge that forms the third level of the interchange. The project also provided the rehabilitation of the adjacent four-span dual-lane bridge that carries the access ramp from SR 0413 to I-95 southbound.
Major items for this bridge included an LMC overlay, new expansion dams, parapet rehabilitation and featured a seismic retrofit using a base isolation system that was one of the first of its kind used in Pennsylvania. The project also included a 1-mile long noise wall, new guide rail and safety barriers, 3 high-mast lighting towers, and 101 conventional roadway luminaries.
