Southbound Interstate 95 will be reduced from three lanes-to-two on Monday, October 7, through Thursday, October 10, from 9:00 PM to 5:00 AM the following morning for median construction between the Girard Avenue and Interstate 676 interchanges in Philadelphia, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today.

Crews will be closing the southbound right lane for placement of concrete for the parapet wall on a section of the new southbound I-95 viaduct that is being replaced under PennDOT’s $312 million contract to rebuild southbound I-95 at the Girard Avenue Interchange.
