King of Prussia, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today that bridge construction will close the ramp from southbound U.S. 1 (Roosevelt Boulevard) to southbound U.S. 13 (Hunting Park Avenue) under a $7.8 million project to replace the bridge carrying the ramp over the expressway in the Hunting Park section of Philadelphia.
Beginning Monday, February 27, through Wednesday, January 17, 2024, the ramp from southbound U.S. 1 (Roosevelt Boulevard) to southbound U.S. 13 (Hunting Park Avenue) will be closed and detoured 24/7.
During the closure, southbound U.S. 1 (Roosevelt Boulevard) motorists will be directed to crossover to the local lanes approaching 2nd Street, turn right on Wyoming Avenue and left on Broad Street (Route 611) to access U.S. 13 (Hunting Park Avenue).
Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling near the work area because backups and delays may occur. All scheduled activities are weather dependent.
Under this contract, PennDOT's contractor will remove the existing single-span, steel plate girder bridge carrying the southbound U.S. 13/Hunting Park Avenue ramp over U.S. 1 (Roosevelt Expressway) and replace the structure with a single-span, prestressed, precast concrete bridge that will provide additional vertical clearance.
Improvements under this project also include constructing retaining wall extensions on the approaches of the new bridge; performing full depth paving; and installing and constructing new sidewalk, ADA curb ramps, a new traffic signal, highway lighting, guiderail and pavement markings.
South State, Inc. of Bridgeton, N.J., is the general contractor on the project, which is financed with 100 percent federal funds.
