A section of Girard Avenue at the Interstate 95 Interchange in Philadelphia and a section of the southbound I-95 ramp to Girard Avenue will be closed during the day for construction activities on the west half of the Aramingo Avenue overpass, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced.
On Monday, April 1, through Friday, April 5, from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM, Girard Avenue will be closed between Aramingo Avenue and Richmond Street.
Eastbound Girard Avenue through traffic will be detoured east on Frankford Avenue and north on Delaware Avenue to Richmond Street. Girard Avenue will remain open to local traffic between Frankford Avenue and the overpass, located just east of Susquehanna Avenue.
Northbound Richmond Street motorists heading for westbound Girard Avenue will be directed north on Aramingo Avenue and follow the local detour signs to Girard Avenue. Southbound Richmond Street motorists heading for Girard Avenue will be detoured west on Lehigh Avenue and south on Aramingo Avenue to Girard Avenue.
In addition, the section of the southbound I-95 off-ramp that passes under Aramingo Avenue and goes directly to Girard Avenue will be closed on Monday, April 1, through Wednesday, April 3, from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM.
Motorists using the southbound I-95 off-ramp heading for Girard Avenue will be directed to use the off-ramp spur to southbound Aramingo Avenue, then south on Delaware Avenue and north on Frankford Avenue to access Girard Avenue.
All scheduled activities are subject to change depending on weather conditions.
The Aramingo Avenue overpass is being rebuilt a half-at-a-time. The east half of the overpass will remain open to southbound Aramingo Avenue traffic heading for southbound Delaware Avenue or to the ramp to southbound I-95 at the Girard Avenue Interchange.
The bridge replacement is part of the $312 million project currently underway through 2023 to replace the southbound I-95 viaduct between Palmer Street in Fishtown and Ann Street in Port Richmond, reconstruct and improve the southbound on and off-ramps at Girard Avenue, and rebuild the southbound I-95 pavement between Ann Street and Allegheny Avenue.
