PennDOT has announced that the northbound side of Interstate 95 will be closed around the Betsy Ross Bridge in Philadelphia as crews work to repair an overpass.

The closures will begin at 9:00 PM on Monday (April 1).

It all comes after an afternoon accident in the area. An oversized vehicle struck the overpass around 1:30 PM.

The crash snarled traffic in the area through the afternoon commute as traffic was reduced to a single lane for inspections.

Detours Announced for I-95 Closure in Port Richmond, Philadelphia

Drivers on I-95 northbound will forced off the roadway at the Betsy Ross/Aramingo Avenue interchange (that's exit 26). They'll turn right onto Arming Avenue, right onto Adams Avenue and access I-95 on the ramp.

I-95 southbound into Center City is expected to remain open during this window. But delays may be possible.

This comes less than a year after a nearby stretch of Interstate 95 was closed for two weeks after a part of the highway collapsed following a fiery crash back in June. A temporary roadway was built, and motorists were able to travel on I-95 by early July.
