Major construction is expected to cause some traffic headaches in Philadelphia early next month.

PennDOT officials say they plan to close a stretch of I-95 North during the first weekend in February.

The closure will run from 6 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 3 to 5 a.m. on Monday, Feb. 5 between Columbus Boulevard (Exit 20) and Interstate 676 (Exit 22).

“The date for the February 3-5 weekend closure was coordinated with neighboring states, Delaware and New Jersey, along with the City of Philadelphia, the Sports Complex, SEPTA, and other stakeholders and transportation agencies across the region,” said PennDOT spokesperson Brad Rudolph.

The only possible hitch in this plan could be the weather. They will push back the closure if there is heavy rain or snow.
