lane closure - traffic alert

PHILADELPHIA, PA — Northbound U.S. 1 (Roosevelt Expressway) will be reduced to a single lane on the Wayne Junction Viaduct over SEPTA tracks and the Nicetown neighborhood in North Philadelphia on Monday, August 2, through Friday, August 6, from 9:00 PM to 5:00 AM the following morning for bridge construction, announced the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT).

In addition, periodic lane closures may occur on southbound U.S.1 (Roosevelt Expressway) on Monday, August 2, through Friday, August 6, from 6:00 PM to 5:00 AM the following morning for various construction activities on the viaduct.

Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work areas or use and alternate routes because significant backups are expected. All scheduled activities are weather-dependent.

Current work to rehabilitate and re-deck the southbound outer lane and shoulder of the mile-long viaduct will continue until spring 2022 before construction shifts to the northbound side of the structure. The entire project is expected to be completed in spring 2024.
