Public Safety has been notified by PennDOT of the following I-76 lane reductions and road closures from Monday, January 25, through Friday, January 29.

I-76 West to Close Periodically at Night for Viaduct Repairs
Westbound Interstate 76, reduced to a single lane around-the-clock between University Avenue and Interstate 676 for median barrier construction, will be closed periodically between 30th Street and I-676 on Monday, January 25, through Friday, January 29, from 10:00 PM to 5:00 AM the following morning for overhead viaduct construction in Center City Philadelphia.
During the closures, westbound I-76 traffic will exit at 30th Street and follow Schuylkill Avenue to the ramp back to westbound I-76 at Market Street.
In addition, the westbound ramp to 30th Street will be closed periodically on Monday, January 25, to Friday, January 29, from 9:00 PM to as late as 5:00 AM the following morning. During the ramp closures, westbound I-76 motorists heading to 30th Street will be detoured west on I-76, which will remain open during the ramp closures, to I-676 east, exit at 23rd Street, turn left on 22nd Street, then left on the ramp to I-676 west and take I-76 east to the ramp to 30th Street.
The eastbound off-ramp and westbound on-ramp at South Street also remain closed during median barrier work. Motorists normally using the closed South Street ramps will follow posted detour signs.
All scheduled activities are weather permitting.
Drivers are advised to use alternate routes or allow extra time when traveling through the work areas because significant backups and delays will occur during all of the scheduled activities.
