The Overland Bridge project will improve traffic flow along the I-95 corridor just south of the Fuller Warren Bridge. The series of overpasses that carry traffic over Hendricks, Kings and Montana avenues are being replaced along 2.3 miles of I-95.
I-95 will be widened to provide an additional lane for southbound traffic. A full service interchange will be built on I-95 and Philips Highway/Atlantic Boulevard. This will provide an exit for northbound traffic on I-95 going to Philips Highway and Atlantic Boulevard.
This project is being constructed in six phases. With each phase, motorists will encounter different series of traffic shifts. By shifting traffic, it will minimize the impacts to motorists but will still allow for construction during peak travel times. The posted speed limit for I-95 will be reduced to 45 mph in the construction zone. Speeding fines are doubled in construction zones when workers are present.
Traffic from the Main Street Bridge southbound to Hendricks Avenue will be closed off this fall and traffic will be required to use Prudential Drive or Riverplace Boulevard.
Lane closures are allowed on I-95 from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. One lane is closed at 8 p.m. with additional lanes closed at 10 p.m. Off of I-95, lane closures occur throughout the day. Pile driving is only allowed during daytime hours.
A noise wall will be built early in the project to minimize noise impacts to the adjacent neighborhoods.
