Nighttime Lane Closures on I-95 in Northeast Philadelphia

Traffic Alert

PHILADELPHIA, PA — The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced that core borings and bridge repairs will continue at night on southbound Interstate 95 in Northeast Philadelphia.

From Monday, June 24, through Thursday, June 27, a right lane closure will be in place from 8:00 PM to 5:00 AM the following morning on southbound I-95 between the Betsy Ross Bridge and Allegheny Avenue interchanges. During the same period, from Monday, June 24, through Friday, June 28, a lane closure will occur from 9:00 PM to 5:00 AM on the ramp from southbound I-95 at the Betsy Ross Bridge interchanges for emergency joint repairs.

Additionally, from Monday, June 24, through Friday, June 28, a single lane closure will start at 9:00 PM, followed by a double lane closure at midnight until 5:00 AM on southbound I-95 between Ashburner Street and Bleigh Avenue for diamond grinding.

Motorists should plan for slowdowns and allow extra time when traveling through these areas. Traffic backups and delays will occur due to the lane closures. All scheduled activities are weather dependent.

The core borings are part of the design phase for PennDOT’s upcoming I-95/AF3 project, which will reconstruct northbound I-95 and its structures between Ann Street and Wheatsheaf Lane. Construction is tentatively scheduled for 2025.

The bridge repairs are part of PennDOT’s $37.4 million project to perform high-priority repairs on 27 I-95 bridges in the city. These efforts aim to maintain the functionality, safety, and mobility of the structures along this critical corridor.
