King of Prussia, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today that bridge demolition will continue tonight, December 8, on the Walnut Street pedestrian bridge over Interstate 95 in Penn's Landing in Center City Philadelphia.
Motorists are advised of the following travel restrictions:
- Friday, December 8, a single lane closure will be in place beginning at 9:00 PM, followed by a double lane closure from 11:00 PM to 6:00 AM the following morning on northbound and southbound I-95 between South Street and Market Street;
- Friday, December 8, from 9:00 PM to 6:00 AM the following morning, the ramp at Lombard Circle and Columbus Boulevard to northbound I-95 will be closed and detoured. Traffic will be directed to the northbound I-95 ramp from Columbus Boulevard near Catherine Street; and
- Friday, December 8, from 9:00 PM to 6:00 AM the following morning, the Market Street ramp to southbound I-95 will be closed as needed. Traffic headed for the Market Street ramp will be detoured south on Front Street, then east on either Dock Street or Spruce Street to south on Columbus Boulevard to the ramp to southbound I-95 at Morris Street.
Motorists are advised to use an alternate route or allow extra time for travel through or near the work areas because backups and delays will occur. The schedule is weather dependent.
The lane ramp closures are needed for the demolition of the Walnut Street Pedestrian Bridge over I-95 and Columbus Boulevard under 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.
