Overnight Lane Closure Along Schuylkill Expressway in Philadelphia

Drivers using the Schuylkill Expressway overnight for the next few weeks should expect to tap their brakes.

The right lane of the westbound Schuylkill (Interstate 76) between South Street and the Vine Street Expressway (I-676) will be closed from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. Sunday through Thursday through the end of January, according to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation.

The project will allow crews to improve the emergency exit for SEPTA’s 30th Street Trolley station.

The project is being done during off-peak hours in an attempt to minimize traffic impact but that doesn’t mean there won’t be times when traffic slows down so be prepared to stop.
