Drivers who normally use the Broad Street ramp will have to find another route this weekend. The Broad Street (Route 611) ramp to northbound Interstate 95 in Philadelphia is currently closed and detoured.
The ramp was closed Friday at 9 p.m. and will remain so until Monday at 5 a.m. Construction crews are currently working on the ramp.
The construction is part of PennDOT’s $21.6 million project to improve 28 bridges on I-95 in Philadelphia and Delaware County. A PennDOT spokesman says a contractor is working at several locations along I-95 to replace rocker bearings, sliding plates and other materials.
Drivers on Broad Street who want to get on I-95 northbound are advised to follow Broad Street to Packer Avenue, take Packer to Front Street, turn right onto Front Street and then follow it to the ramp on I-95 North.
