Expect to See More I-95 Traffic Next Week

Here are the details on roadwork and travel restrictions set to start July 10th.

I-95 Traffic

Construction projects will impact I-95 traffic starting July 10th.

The three-mile stretch of highway between the Cottman Avenue and Girard Avenue interchanges is being reconstructed, and both interchanges will be rebuilt, PennDOT announced yesterday.

Restrictions are set to last about a week, between July 10 and July 16th.

I-95 will be decreased from three to two lanes in the northbound direction between Bridge Street and Cottman Avenue. The Cottman Avenue off-ramp to Route 73 will be closed on the northbound side. Drivers can use the following exit at the Academy Road interchange to Linden Avenue.

A stretch of the roadway between Cumberland Street and Lehigh Avenue near the Girard Avenue exit will see occasional interruptions between July 11th and July 15th from 7 a.m. until 3 p.m. daily. Expect congestion near Richmond Street as a result.

The Princeton Avenue on-ramp will be closed each night from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. the following morning.

PennDOT advised drivers to allow for extra time to travel. More information on the project and restrictions can be found here.
