Abutment Construction Continues on Front Street for I-95 CAP Project

April 30, 2024 – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today that following the installation of sheet piles along Front Street between Walnut and Chestnut streets, crews completed the majority of the “H pile” installations needed to enlarge the existing abutment and retaining wall footings that will support the new CAP structure. After encountering buried obstructions near Chestnut Street, crews will need to perform obstruction drilling before compgleting the remaining “H pile” installations over the next few weeks.

Work on the abutment will take place on weekdays from 7:00 AM to 3:30 PM and is expected to continue into the fall. Vibration monitors are in place throughout the project area to ensure that vibration levels remain below a level that could cause damage to nearby structures.
