New Traffic Pattern Planned on I-95 North in Northeast Philadelphia


Philadelphia, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today that construction is scheduled on northbound Interstate 95 in Northeast Philadelphia to set up a new traffic pattern under PennDOT's I-95/BS2 project.

Motorists are advised of the following travel restrictions:

Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work areas because backups and delays will occur. This operation is weather dependent.​

The northbound traffic shift is the start of the next phase of PennDOT's $268 million I-95/BS2 project. A new pattern on the southbound side is expected to be in place in early June. When the new patterns are in place, three lanes of traffic will be traveling on the existing northbound lanes and median while the southbound side is reconstructed from Carver to Margaret streets.
