Upcoming Closures on I-95 South: What Motorists Need to Know

PennDOT has announced that a segment of Interstate 95 South will undergo construction and experience closures from February 19 through March 11 as part of the comprehensive $329 million CAP project. This initiative aims to replace and expand the covered area over the interstate at Penn’s Landing in Center City Philadelphia, enhancing infrastructure and travel conditions.

During this period, motorists should be prepared for travel restrictions, which include periodic double lane closures on both northbound and southbound I-95 between Market Street and South Street from Monday, February 19, through Thursday, February 22, each night from 9:00 PM to 5:00 AM the following morning.

Additionally, the Market Street ramp to I-95 South will be completely closed from 6:00 AM on Monday, February 19, until Monday, March 11. A detour will guide motorists to southbound Columbus Boulevard and then to the on-ramp to I-95 South at Morris Street. Trucks will be directed to continue further south on Columbus Boulevard to access I-95 South via Oregon Avenue and Front Street.

This closure period includes a significant traffic shift with the complete closure of I-95 South from I-676/Callowhill Street (Exit 22) to the Morris Street on-ramp in Philadelphia, scheduled from 5:00 PM Saturday, February 24, to 5:00 AM Monday, February 26. This closure is necessary for PennDOT’s contractor to install temporary barriers and prepare for the traffic shift ahead.

Motorists are strongly advised to avoid the affected area during the closure periods to prevent significant backups and delays, which are expected on I-95 and surrounding surface streets near the work zone. Planning alternative routes and allowing for extra travel time are recommended to navigate around the construction and closure efficiently.

A day to embrace one special trait that makes us human: our love of our pets! There are many things that differentiate humans from the rest of the animal kingdom, but one of the more unusual behaviors is our longstanding tendency to keep other animals as pets. According to Wisevoter’s Pet Ownership Statistics, about 57% of American households owned at least one pet. It only makes sense to commemorate something that’s so important to so many people, so we celebrate our pets with National Love Your Pet Day!
