To some extent.

The "survival" package allows left censoring and interval censoring, but only for parametric models. The Icens package estimates survival curves for interval censored data (including multivariate times), but does not do regression.

I am not aware of any package that allows semiparametric regression modelling of interval censored or doubly censored data.
