PennDOT is undertaking a multi-phase rebuilding of I-95 within Philadelphia over the course of several decades.  This project represents more than $2 billion in investment in highway infrastructure and associated improvements to reconnect the City’s neighborhoods to the waterfront.  PennDOT, through oTIS, is coordinating with numerous City departments to ensure that opportunities for neighborhood-based improvements are incorporated as construction progresses.

One major initiative that PennDOT is undertaking with the City and the Delaware River Waterfront Corporation is the redevelopment of Penn’s Landing, including:

  • Reconstructing the bridge spanning the highway between Chestnut and Walnut Streets into an 11-acre civic space that connects people to the waterfront;
  • extending the South Street Pedestrian Bridge to improve that connection to the waterfront; and
  • constructing a two-mile section of the Delaware River trail between Spring Garden Street and Washington Avenue.

The City is a major financial contributor to the civic space and trail.  Completion of this phase is expected in 2024.
