Additional Comments:

This project was completed on an accelerated schedule to limit impact to traffic. NB traffic was restricted from four to three through lanes for the first 19 days and NB and SB traffic was restricted from four to three through lanes for the following 19 days. The total number of days the contractor was allowed to restrict traffic full time on I-95 was 38 days. The contractor was paid an incentive for early completion and charged a disincentive if they fail to complete the project on schedule. Lane restrictions on I-95 were planned to begin on or about October 1, 2016.
