Sheet Pile Installation Begins March 11 on Front Street for I-95 CAP Project

March 1, 2024 – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today that sheet pile installation will begin on Front Street between Walnut and Chestnut streets on Monday, March 11. The work will take place on weekdays from 7:00 AM to 3:30 PM and is expected to take 4-6 weeks to complete.

During the sheet pile installation, PennDOT’s contractor will use a vibratory hammer to vibrate the piles into place. 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.

The sheet piles are necessary to support the soil adjacent to the area being excavated for construction of the new CAP over I-95.
