Q. How long will I-95 remain under construction between Cottman Avenue and Interstate 676 in Philadelphia?

A. To address the unavoidable and ongoing deterioration of Interstate 95 in Pennsylvania, PennDOT is in the midst of a long-term program to rebuild the aging and heavily-used interstate. While widening and rebuilding I-95 between the Cottman Avenue and Bridge Street interchanges in Philadelphia is expected to finish by early 2017, reconstruction and widening between Bridge Street and Interstate 676, including interchanges at Bridge Street, Betsy Ross Bridge/Aramingo Avenue, Allegheny Avenue and Girard Avenue, will continue into 2025 and beyond.....More  here.
