Southbound I-95 On Ramp Update


News for Immediate Release

August 12, 2011

New Southbound On-Ramp Opens Tuesday At I-95/Cottman Avenue Interchange

Old southbound on-ramp from Princeton Avenue to close following new ramp’s opening

King of Prussia – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation will open a new on-ramp to I-95 South at the Cottman Avenue Interchange on Tuesday, Aug. 16 to replace the existing southbound on-ramp from Princeton Avenue, which will close immediately after the new ramp’s opening.

The planned ramp opening and subsequent closing, which are weather dependent, are scheduled to take place mid-day Tuesday.

Situated along Longshore Avenue at State Road, the ramp is one of two new on-ramps planned under PennDOT’s two-stage project to rebuild and improve the Cottman Avenue Interchange and 1.4 miles of I-95 between Bleigh Avenue and Levick Street.

The new Longshore Avenue on-ramp has been built under the on-going first stage of the I-95 Section CPR project (I-95, Section CP1), which also includes improvements to the existing northbound on-ramp from Princeton Avenue and changes to surface roads in the interchange area. A second new southbound on-ramp, which will be accessed from Cottman Avenue east of State Road, will be built under the second stage of the project (I-95, Section CP2) that is scheduled to be under construction in early 2012.

With the new ramp opened, crews on the $31.9 million CP1 project will begin demolishing the old Princeton Aveune on-ramp to I-95 South, including removal of the ramp’s overpass at State Road. Tentative plans call for that overpass to be dismantled during the weekend of Aug. 26-28. State Road traffic will be detoured at Princeton Avenue at that time.

Additionally, PennDOT will implement new traffic patterns on sections of Princeton and Cottman avenues over the next month as crews complete the ramp removal and related improvements to the intersection of Princeton Avenue and State Road. Those new traffic patterns include:

  • Changing Princeton Avenue from an eastbound-only street to a two-way street between Torresdale Avenue and State Road;
  • Changing Cottman Avenue from a westbound-only street to a two-way street between Torresdale Avenue and State Road.

In addition, State Road has been widened to include two southbound lanes and one northbound lane between Cottman Avenue and New State Road.

Section CP1 work also is continuing on the existing northbound on-ramp at Princeton Avenue, which is being widened to accommodate a spur ramp that will be built this fall from Milnor Street.

PennDOT reminds motorists they can log on to or call 511 from any phone to check traffic conditions on major highways before heading out.
