I-95 Section AFC (I-95/AFC)

Reconstruct and improve 1.5 miles of I-95 from just south of the Betsy Ross Bridge Interchange to Ann Street, including reconstruction and reconfiguration of the Allegheny/Castor Avenue Interchange. The southbound on and off-ramps at Allegheny Avenue will be reconstructed, and the northbound off-ramp will be moved to Castor Avenue. In addition, the northbound on-ramp at Castor Avenue will be reconfigured to give access to I-95 along with a direct connection to the Betsy Ross Bridge.

Under the I-95/AFC project, PennDOT will improve I-95 and its bridges from Wheatsheaf Lane to Ann Street. Minor widening that is necessary will be on the east side of I-95. The section of I-95 between Allegheny Avenue and Westmoreland Street will be rebuilt as a viaduct instead of at-grade as it is currently.
Reconstruction of Richmond Street between Ann Street and Westmoreland Street begins in 2018. Read more.
