Yes, the construction of the new mainline toll plaza in Bensalem and the new toll facilities at US 13 is underway:

Yes, but there's still a ways to go before the I-95 gap is closed:

This long overdue project is not exactly proceeding rapidly. Heck, the whole original New Jersey Turnpike was built in what, 2 years???  Looking at the timeline on their website, I hope I live long enough to see this interchange completed and actually get to drive through it! I've been waiting for this to happen since 1976, when I first drove to Phila. and stared in disbelief as I drove west on the Penn. Turnpike thru the I-95 underpass and there was no interchange there to go south on I-95 to Phila. This travesty would never have happened in New York State. Look at all the NY Thruway interchanges with other Interstate Freeways.

As much as I hate PA's non-interchanges, it's worth noting that the Thruway was built at the same time as the other interstates, unlike the PTC.

And yet...look how long it took to get a direct connection between I-87 and I-84! :(
