Crash Closes Vine Street Expressway in Center City

A truck is sitting on the barrier that separates the end of I-676 westbound and the on-ramps to I-76. The crash happened around 5 a.m.

Update: I-676 has reopened.


A car crash this morning turned what is usually a light rush hour into a slog this morning. A crash around 5 a.m. closed I-676 in Center City in both directions.

Apparently, a truck is sitting on the barrier at the split where I-676 ends and sends drivers onto I-76.

Crews are still working to clear the truck. I-676 is closed near the Parkway, and is backed up as a result throughout. If you’re headed to I-676 Westbound from I-95, it’s best to get off at Callowhill and take surface streets.
