CONNECTOR ROAD OPEN, RAMP NEARING COMPLETION AT I-95/GIRARD AVENUE INTERCHANGE
As crews complete construction of the concrete deck for the temporary southbound off-ramp at the I-95 Girard Avenue Interchange, workers have finished the connector road and opened it to northbound Aramingo Avenue traffic.
The off-ramp, under construction immediately adjacent to the existing off-ramp that connects with Girard Avenue, will give motorists direct access to the waterfront along Delaware Avenue via Aramingo Avenue.
To complete the first of six stages of a project to rebuild the interchange and adjoining sections of northbound and southbound I-95, Aramingo Avenue traffic has been split into new patterns between Norris Street and Delaware Avenue.
The split allows crews to begin breaking up and removing the old northbound Aramingo Avenue pavement in the interchange area. Southbound traffic will remain in its current configuration between Norris Street and Delaware Avenue.
The new ramp will then be connected with southbound Aramingo Avenue at a new signalized intersection, providing motorists from I-95 and nearby surface roads with direct access to the waterfront and the ramp to I-95 south at Girard Avenue.
During construction at the interchange, the ramp from Girard Avenue to I-95 north is closed. A posted detour directs eastbound drivers onto Richmond Street, where they can access northbound Aramingo Avenue and the ramp to I-95 north.
The improvements being completed under I-95/GR0 are designed to move traffic between the interstate ramp/Aramingo Avenue and Delaware Avenue/the waterfront during the five future construction stages.
