Additional Ramp Construction at Betsy Ross Bridge Interchange in 2020

Aug 26, 2019

PennDOT expects to begin work to complete ramp improvements at the Betsy Ross Bridge Interchange, Section BR2, in early-to-mid 2020. This project will replace the ramp structure from northbound I-95 that passes over the Frankford Creek and connects with the bridge. Traffic will be maintained on this ramp during construction.

The ramp from the bridge to I-95 south also will be replaced as part of BR2. This ramp will be closed for approximately 18 months during construction.

Section BR2 is the second phase of ramp improvements at this interchange. The first phase of these ramp improvements was completed in 2017 under the Section BR0 project.

At the completion of BR2, the ramps will be tied in with the widening and other improvements currently under construction along Aramingo Avenue and on the extension of Adams Avenue from Torresdale Avenue to Aramingo Avenue (Adams Avenue Connector) at the interchange.

Three additional construction contracts, or sections, will complete the reconstruction of I-95 at the Betsy Ross Bridge Interchange and improve almost a mile of I-95 between the Betsy Ross and Bridge Street interchanges.
