I-95 South Cottman Avenue Traffic Tangle Finally Over?

Southbound off-ramp, closed since April 2013, expected to re-open Friday morning for rush-hour traffic.


PennDOT announced yesterday that for the first time since April 30th of last year, you’ll be able to exit I-95 southbound at the Cottman Avenue interchange. The exit was closed to to construct a new, wider ramp — part of a $212.3 million project to improve the interstate between Rhawn and Levick streets.

The shiny new ramp is expected to be open in time for the morning rush, but southbound I-95 was expected to reduced from three lanes to two between Academy Road and Cottman Avenue from 8 p.m. Thursday through 5 a.m. Friday (July 18th) as concrete barriers are reset.

The project was financed with 90 percent federal funds and 10 percent state funds.
