I-95 Construction at Foglietta Park for Temporary Memorial Relocation Underway

October 19, 2023 – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today that construction at the southwest corner of Foglietta Park at the corner of Spruce Street and 38th Parallel Plaza began on Monday, October 23 in preparation for the temporary relocation of the Irish and Scottish Memorials during construction to expand and improve the covered section of Interstate 95 between Chestnut and Walnut streets. 

No road closures are planned at this time, but pedestrians will be directed to cross at sidewalks across from this location.

The work is part of PennDOT’s $329 million I-95/CAP project to replace, expand, and improve the existing covered section of I-95 and improve multi-modal connections between Center City and the Delaware River waterfront.
