PA Emergency Management Agency says it will take months to fully repair I-95

According to Molly Dougherty with PA Emergency Management Agency, a truck carrying a petroleum product caught on fire under I-95 before 6:30 AM Sunday, June 11. The northbound lane collapsed and the southbound lane is impassable. I-95 is shut down in both directions. 

Dougherty says the cause of the incident is under investigation. 

PA Emergency Management is working with The City of Philadelphia to establishing detours. The city is relying on mass transit to compensate for the loss of the I-95 corridor.

Preliminary estimates determine it will take months to repair the damage. 

Penn DOT has established a Website for updates on this incident, further updates from the state will be shared here:  https://www.penndot.pa.gov/RegionalOffices/district-6/Pages/AlertDetails.aspx

As always, additional alerts and detour information can be found at https://www.511pa.com/


Due to a bridge collapse, north and southbound lanes of I-95 in Northeast Philadelphia are closed from Exit 22 to Exit 35.

We are waiting for more information from law enforcement on the details of the incident. 

PennDOT released detours for I-95 drivers. 

PennDOT is directing all I-95 NB traffic to use Exit 22 to I-676 WB to I-76 WB to US 1 NB to PA 63 EB to I-95 NB. 

PennDOT is directing all I-95 SB traffic to use Exit 35 to PA 63 WB to US 1 SB to I-76 EB to I-676 EB to I-95 SB.

Sunday morning, Philadelphia managing director Tumar Alexander told the Philadelphia Inquirer,  “I-95 will be impacted for a long time, for a long time."
