Motorists will encounter nighttime travel restrictions this week on Interstate 95 for construction at the Girard Avenue and Betsy Ross Bridge/Aramingo Avenue interchanges in Philadelphia, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced.
The work is associated with improvements underway to improve the ramp system at the Betsy Ross Bridge/Aramingo Avenue Interchange and to rebuild the Girard Avenue Interchange and reconstruct and widen more than three miles of I-95 adjoining those interchanges.
From December 16, through Friday, December 18, I-95 north will be reduced from three lanes to two between the Girard Avenue and Allegheny Avenue interchanges from 10:00 PM to 5:00 AM the following morning for adjustments to construction barriers. Crews will adjust barriers following the closure of the northbound on-ramp from Delaware Avenue at the Girard Avenue Interchange. The on-ramp closes today for 18 months for reconstruction.
From 8:00 PM Friday, December 18, to 5:00 AM Saturday, December 19, I-95 north will be reduced from three through lanes to two at the Betsy Ross Bridge/Aramingo Avenue Interchange for the removal of construction barriers.
Motorists should expect slow moving traffic and delays when entering the work zones. All scheduled activities are weather dependent.
