Roadway, Bridge Construction Continues Next Week on U.S. 13 South Ramp Over U.S. 1 (Roosevelt Boulevard) in Hunting Park


King of Prussia, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today that roadway and bridge construction will continue next week under a $7.8 million project to replace the overhead ramp and structure from southbound U.S. 1 (Roosevelt Boulevard) to southbound U.S. 13 (Hunting Park Avenue) in the Hunting Park section of Philadelphia.

Motorists are advised of the following travel restriction:

Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work area or use an alternate route because backups and delays will occur. All scheduled activities under this contract are weather dependent.

Drivers are reminded that the southbound U.S. 13 (Hunting Park Avenue) ramp remains closed 24/7 through January 2024. The ramp was closed to traffic on Tuesday, February 28, 2023, for demolition and replacement.

During the ramp closure, southbound U.S. 1 (Roosevelt Boulevard) motorists are being directed to follow the posted detour by using Wyoming Avenue and Broad Street (Route 611) to access U.S. 13 (Hunting Park Avenue).

Under this project, 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 Boulevard) and replace the structure with a single-span, prestressed, precast concrete bridge that will provide additional vertical clearance.

Improvements 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, 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% federal funds.

Motorists can check conditions on more than 40,000 roadway miles, including color-coded winter conditions, by visiting 511PA, which is free and available 24 hours a day, provides traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts, traffic speed information and access to more than 1,000 traffic cameras.
