Roadway, Bridge Construction Continues Next Week on U.S. 13 South Ramp Over U.S. 1 (Roosevelt Boulevard) in Hunting Park

04/03/2024

Philadelphia, PA - The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today that final paving operations and other construction activities will occur next week under the substantially completed project to replace the overhead ramp and structure from southbound U.S. 1 (Roosevelt Boulevard) to southbound U.S. 13 (Hunting Park Avenue) in the Hunting Park section of Philadelphia.

Motorists are advised of the following travel restrictions:

  • From 9:00 AM Monday, April 8, to 9:00 AM Wednesday, April 10, the southbound U.S. 13 (Hunting Park Avenue) bridge ramp over U.S. 1 (Roosevelt Boulevard) will be closed and detoured for final paving operations. During the ramp closure, southbound U.S. 1 (Roosevelt Boulevard) motorists are being directed to use Wyoming Avenue and Broad Street (Route 611) to access U.S. 13 (Hunting Park Avenue).
  • Monday, April 8, through Friday, April 12, from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM, and from 8:00 PM to 5:00 AM the following morning, periodic single lane closures and temporary slowdowns will be in place on northbound and southbound U.S. 1 (Roosevelt Boulevard) between Wyoming Avenue and 16th Street for paving, line striping and barrier removal.

Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling near or through the work areas because backups and delays will occur. All scheduled activities are weather dependent.

Under this project, PennDOT's contractor removed the existing single-span, steel plate girder bridge carrying the southbound U.S. 13/Hunting Park Avenue ramp over U.S. 1 (Roosevelt Boulevard) and replaced the structure with a single-span, prestressed, precast concrete bridge that will provide additional vertical clearance.

Improvements also included constructing retaining wall extensions on the approaches of the new bridge; performing full depth paving; and installing and constructing new sidewalk, ADA curb ramps, new traffic signal, highway lighting, guiderail and pavement markings.

South State, Inc. of Bridgeton, N.J., is the general contractor on the $7.8 million project, which is financed with 100 percent federal funds.

Motorists can check conditions on more than 40,000 roadway miles by visiting www.511PA.com. 511PA, which is free and available 24 hours a day, provides traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts, traffic speed information and access to more than 1,000 traffic cameras.
