Rebuilding and Improving Interstate 95

PennDOT is in the midst of a long-term, multi-phase initiative to rebuild and improve Interstate 95 in Pennsylvania. Five major projects to reconstruct the I-95 between the Interstate 676 and Cottman Avenue interchanges in Philadelphia are in various stages of design or construction, including active projects at the Girard Avenue, Allegheny Avenue and Betsy Ross/Bridge Street interchanges. Construction also is underway on the Adams Avenue Connector.

Q. How will the coming work on I-95 affect travel on the interstate and in the neighborhoods adjacent to it?

A. Although the details are still being worked out for each section of the overall I-95 project, PennDOT will complete the reconstruction in stages that are designed to minimize impacts to motorists. For work on the main line of I-95, a minimum of three lanes will remain open in each direction during peak travel times and many on-off ramps will remain in service. Construction may require street closures, local detours and parking restrictions at times on surface roads in the vicinity of the interchanges......More  here.
