I am not sure if it is truly a permanent closure based on the news release.

It's a permanent closure of this particular ramp. In the future, traffic will turn left and merge onto the current southbound ramp to the Highland Park Bridge.

And now PennDOT is reversing themselves and reopening the ramp @ 9AM this morning (08/02) till November when the replacement left turn movement to access the SB Freeport Road ramp onto the Highland Park Bridge is opened.  However, truck traffic will now be banned from using the ramp till the new one is open.

I viewed the proposed design, I wonder how they will get any hazmat/oversize that overshot the exit off the highway.

They might have to move the overheight detectors further uphill.  Same with hazmat signage.

The concern I have is more of runaway trucks using the ramp instead of the escape ramp, since they are so close.
