The reopening date and length of construction have yet to be determined

Sections of Interstate 95 North in Philadelphia will be closed for days to make emergency repairs after a vehicle hit a rail bridge, according to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT).

A section of I-95 closed at 9 p.m. Monday with traffic detoured approaching tthe Betsy Ross Bridge/Aramingo Ave. Interchange, according to officials.

The announcement said the closure was due to an oversized vehicle striking a bridge in Northeast Philadelphia around 1:30 p.m.

Drivers will be instructed to use the Betsy Ross/Aramingo Avenue Interchange at Exit 26, turn right onto Aramingo Avenue and then right onto Adams Avenue to access the ramp to I-95 North.

During repairs, the ramp from Castor Avenue to I-95 northbound will also be closed and detoured. Again, motorists will be directed toward Aramingo Avenue to access the onramp at Adams Avenue.

The reopening date and length of construction have yet to be determined, but PennDOT said the maintenance will take several days. Drivers are advised to avoid closure areas.
