This work is part of the pavement preservation project along 1-95. The project begins at mile 10.67 (Exit 10) and ends at log mile 15.91(Exit 15) in both the northbound and southbound directions.
Ramp closure detours will be implemented and appropriate signs will be posted in the area. Drivers are advised to maintain a safe speed when driving in this vicinity.
