Commuters should expect some extra I-95 traffic this week as a reconstruction project that will last for the next nine months kicks off. 

PennDOT recently announced that the heavily-trafficked I-95 southbound ramp to Aramingo Avenue at the Betsy Ross Bridge interchange will close at 8 p.m. this Wednesday.

Those looking to use the ramp will be directed to exit at Bridge Street and follow signs to Aramingo Avenue. Otherwise, drivers can stay on I-95 for about two miles to the Allegheny Avenue off-ramp, then turn left on Allegheny Avenue, left on Delaware Avenue and left on Castor Avenue until they reach Aramingo Avenue.

The reconstruction is part of a $160.2 million contract to improve the ramp system at the interchange. The ramp is expected to reopen in 2017.
