Central Access Philadelphia

Covering I-95 with amenities, enhanced pedestrian access at Penn’s Landing.

I-95 Section CAP (I-95/CAP)

The I-95/CAP project is replacing and expanding the existing covered area over I-95 between Chestnut and Walnut streets with a larger cover that extends east over Christopher Columbus Boulevard at Penn’s Landing. The $329 million partnership between PennDOT, the City of Philadelphia, and the Delaware River Waterfront Corporation will improve pedestrian and multi-modal access between Center City and the popular Delaware River Waterfront.

The South Street Pedestrian Bridge over I-95, which currently terminates on the east side of I-95, also will be extended over Columbus Boulevard with a new, signature structure: a “Tied-Arch” Bridge.

The centerpiece of the CAP project will be an amenity-rich, pedestrian-friendly Park at Penn’s Landing that will be constructed on the expanded covered area over I-95 and Columbus Boulevard. Visit www.parkatpennslanding.com for a detailed look at the Park.

Construction on the five-year project began in early 2023. We will use this website to chronicle the CAP construction.
