Over the next decade, PennDOT will focus on reconstructing an eight mile stretch of Interstate 95 north of Center City Philadelphia. This Sector A area consists of five currently active major projects, described on this site and highlighted in green on the map at left. Construction is currently active at the Cottman/Princeton Interchange (CPR), at the Betsy Ross Bridge/Aramingo Avenue Interchange (BRI), and at the Girard Avenue Interchange (GIR). Two other sections, at the Bridge Street Interchange (BSR) and from the Frankford Creek, south of the Betsy Ross interchange, to Allegheny Avenue (AFC) are in varying stages of design as engineers work out the details of rebuilding the interchanges and the connecting segments of I-95.
Sector A projects pose particular design, construction and traffic management challenges given their location within densely populated Philadelphia neighborhoods and their proximity to port facilities, an active major north-south rail line and the Delaware River waterfront.
