Northbound Aramingo Avenue Lane Closure, New Traffic Pattern Begins Saturday in Philadelphia 

December 1, 2017 – Northbound Aramingo Avenue will be reduced from two-lanes-to-one for approximately six months beginning this weekend for construction on the bridge over Frankford Creek at the Interstate 95 Betsy Ross Bridge Interchange in the Frankford section of Philadelphia, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today.

On Saturday, December 2, from 7:30 AM to 3:00 PM, Aramingo Avenue will be reduced to a single lane in each direction between the interchange ramps near Church Street and Wheatsheaf Lane while crews move barriers, paint new lane markings and complete other activities to establish the new traffic pattern.

The new pattern, which will carry two southbound lanes and one northbound lane through the work zone, is expected to be in place by 3:00 PM Saturday.

Drivers are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work area.  The contractor’s schedule is weather dependent.

PennDOT is replacing the bridge over Frankford Creek as part of a project to improve Aramingo Avenue at the interchange and extend Adams Avenue from Torresdale Avenue to Aramingo Avenue and the ramps to and from I-95 and the bridge. 

A.P. Construction, Inc., of Blackwood, NJ, is the general contractor on the $81,022,883 project which is financed with 80 percent federal and 20 percent state funds.
