Jun 05, 2017
June 18, 2017 -- Palmer Street and Columbia Avenue are closed to through traffic between Wildey Street and Delaware Avenue for construction of the remaining portion of the new northbound viaduct and the off-ramp from northbound I-95 to Richmond Street at the Girard Avenue Interchange.

Columbia Avenue will remain closed until August 2017. Palmer Street will be closed until May 2018.

A nearby section of Richmond Street,
between Columbia Avenue and Marlborough Street, also will be closed for roughly two months beginning 9:00 AM Monday, June 5, for construction of the new ramp. Richmond Street motorists will be detoured over Frankford Avenue.

The new northbound I-95 off-ramp at Girard Avenue opened last month using a temporary approach from northbound I-95. Work at Columbia Avenue and Richmond Street will construct the permanent approach to the new off-ramp.
