The Philadelphia Water Department closed the ramp from southbound I-95 to Bridge Street/Harbison Avenue on Monday following the break, PennDOT and PWD announced.

“During the operation, motorists will be directed to continue south on I-95, exit at Aramingo Avenue and continue on Aramingo Avenue to Bridge Street. Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling near the work area because backups and delays will occur,” PennDOT said in a news release.
