A very busy stretch of highway in our area will be closed for "several days" as crews work to make emergency repairs to an overhead bridge.

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

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

It all comes after an afternoon accident in the area. An oversized vehicle struck the overpass around 1:30 p.m.  The crash snarled traffic in the area through the afternoon commute as traffic was reduced to a single lane for inspections.

Here's what we know about the closure, which will DEFINITELY affect commuters.

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.

Extremely heavy delays are expected in the area during the closure on both I-95 and the alternate roads. The exact length of the project was not immediately clear so we don't know when the roadway will reopen.

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

New Jersey Transit's Atlantic Rail Line Service Affected

The repairs to the overhead bridge will also affect train service in the area. The Atlantic City Rail Line service is suspended in both directions between Philadelphia's 30th Street Station and Cherry HIll. 

They're offering a substitute bus service between the two areas. Additionally, NJTransit's tickets are being cross-honored by PATCO.
