Girard Avenue (U.S. 30) Lane, Ramp Restrictions Scheduled for July for Bridge Construction in Philadelphia

King of Prussia, PA – Single lane closures are scheduled on Girard Avenue (U.S. 30) and the eastbound Interstate 76 ramp to Girard Avenue (U.S. 30) beginning Thursday, July 1, for bridge construction under a project to replace the structure that carries four lanes of traffic and the SEPTA Route 15 trolley over CSX railroad tracks between 34th and 38th streets in the Parkside neighborhood of Philadelphia, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today.

The single lane closures will be in place weekdays and possibly Saturdays, from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM, through Saturday, July 31, at the following locations:

  • Girard Avenue (U.S. 30) between 34th Street and 38th Street; and
  • The eastbound I-76 ramp to Girard Avenue (U.S. 30).

The travel restrictions will not be in place on Saturday, July 3, through Monday, July 5, due to the Independence Day holiday.

Drivers are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work areas because significant backups and delays will occur. All scheduled activities are weather dependent.

Work on this project will be in accordance with Centers for Disease Control and state Department of Health guidance as well as a project-specific COVID-19 safety plan, which will include protocols for social distancing, use of face coverings, personal and job-site cleaning protocols, management of entries to the jobsite, special signing, and relevant training.

The scope of work on this project includes replacement of the bridge superstructure, rehabilitation of the stone support abutments and construction of a dedicated right turn lane on the eastbound I-76 ramp to Girard Avenue (U.S. 30). The SEPTA trolley tracks will also be replaced across the bridge.

Neshaminy Constructors Inc. is the general contractor on the $4,146,204 project, which is financed with 80 percent federal and 20 percent state funds.

Motorists can check conditions on more than 40,000 roadway miles by visiting 511PA, which is free and available 24 hours a day, provides traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts, traffic speed information and access to more than 1,000 traffic cameras.
