Construction Planned at Night Next Week on I-95 South at Betsy Ross Bridge Interchange in Philadelphia


King of Prussia, PA - The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today that construction is scheduled at night next week on southbound Interstate 95 at the Betsy Ross Bridge Interchange in Northeast Philadelphia.

Motorists are advised of the following travel restriction:

Drivers are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work area because backups and delays will occur. All scheduled activities are weather dependent.

PennDOT opened the reconstructed ramps from the bridge and from Aramingo Avenue to southbound I-95 on Friday, November 10, substantially completing the $93.6 million Section BR2 project to improve the connections with I-95 to and from the bridge and surface streets at the interchange.

Work will continue at various locations at the interchange through the end of 2023 as the contractor completes post-construction punch list activities.
