Pennsylvania I-95 Closed | I-95 Exit Guide

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT), District 6 office reports the following update regarding the I-95 bridge collapse and subsequent closure of Interstate 95 in Philadelphia.

At 12:00 p.m. on June 12, Governor Shapiro signed a Proclamation of Disaster Emergency (PDF) following the collapse of the I-95 overpass in Philadelphia.

At 8:00 a.m. on June 12, PennDOT and our partners are working to respond to the partial collapse of Interstate 95 between Exits 30 and 32 in Philadelphia. The interstate is still closed in both directions in this area. Demolition of the collapsed bridges has begun and detours are in place.

A more exact timeline for the complete rebuilding of the I-95 roadway should be available in the coming days once the engineers complete their review. To expedite this process and to cut through the red tape, Governor Shapiro plans to issue/has issued a disaster declaration, allowing the Commonwealth to immediately draw down federal funds and move quickly to begin the repair and reconstruction process. 

We are grateful for the ongoing collaboration with the City of Philadelphia, state and local law enforcement, our federal partners, and other stakeholders and will share more information as it becomes available.

At 5:00 p.m. on June 11,  Governor Shapiro, officials from the Shapiro Administration, the City of Philadelphia, and SEPTA provided an update on the response to the I-95 incident.

At 4: 30 p.m. on June 11, The City of Philadelphia has a blog page with updates in regards to the incident.
