Update on I-95 South Lane Closure in Philadelphia

lane closures

PHILADELPHIA, PA — Southbound Interstate 95 will be reduced from three lanes to two in the work zone between the Allegheny Avenue and Girard Avenue interchanges in Philadelphia, on Friday, July 16, from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM, for barrier construction, reports the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT). The lane closure was originally scheduled for Thursday, July 15.

I-95 motorists using the Allegheny Avenue ramp to southbound I-95 will be required to stop before entering I-95 due to a reduced merge lane during the barrier construction operation.

Motorists are advised to allow extra time for travel through the work zone because southbound delays are expected. This operation is weather-dependent.

The barrier construction is part of the $312 million project currently underway through 2023 to reconstruct southbound I-95 between the Allegheny Avenue and Girard Avenue interchanges.
