The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced that construction will continue at night this week on southbound Interstate 95 under the $329 million CAP project to replace and expand the covered area over the interstate.

Weather permitting, motorists are advised of the following travel restrictions:

  • Tuesday, March 5, through Thursday, March 7, from 7:00 PM to 5:00 AM the following morning, a lane closure is scheduled on southbound I-95 between Market Street and South Street.
  • Tuesday, March 5, through Thursday, March 7, from 10:00 PM to 5:00 AM the following morning, the ramp from I-676 East to I-95 South (Chester/Philadelphia Int’l Airport) will be closed. Motorists will be directed to exit at the Ben Franklin Bridge and use 6th Street, Race Street and southbound Columbus Boulevard to access the on-ramp to I-95 South at Morris Street. Trucks will be directed to continue south on Columbus Boulevard and use Oregon Avenue and Front Street to access the on-ramp to I-95 South.

The Market Street ramp to I-95 South, which closed on Monday, February 19, is scheduled to reopen to traffic on Friday, March 8. During the closure, drivers are being directed to follow the posted detour signs to southbound Columbus Boulevard and access I-95 South at Morris Street. Trucks will use the Front Street on-ramp to I-95 South. 

By replacing and extending the cap over I-95 and Columbus Boulevard between Chestnut and Walnut streets, the $329 million I-95 Central Access Philadelphia (CAP) Project will improve pedestrian and multimodal connections between Center City and the waterfront. The project has two main components: a new Park at Penn’s Landing, and a new signature bridge at South Street, both of which will also extend over Columbus Boulevard to connect cyclists and pedestrians to the newly completed Delaware River Trail.
