Yeah we have some real deep thinkers here.  When the city floods, all of the sewers mix with the river water.  That guy is jumping into partially diluted raw sewage.  Plus the Schulykill ain’t pool water even on a good day.

I was gonna say, even when you're just going into the water in Philly, it's pretty much all partially diluted raw sewage anyway.

Re: 676 (from the Inquirer)

PennDot crews are continuing to pump water from the Vine Street Expressway — mostly on the west end of the I-676 highway — which effectively transformed into a canal this week after the Schuylkill overflowed. Crews are using eight pumps to remove the water and return it to the river, PennDot spokesperson Brad Rudolph said.

Remaining debris and sediment on the highway will be taken to a job site on I-95 and used for fill, he said.

PennDOT - District 6 News: I-676 East (Vine Street Expressway) Fully Reopened in Center City Philadelphia

Looking at the list, I noticed that I am glad that I clinched PA 263 two weeks ago.  I have no clue when that clinch would have been if I had waited.

PennDOT - District 6 News: Rebuilt I-95 Southbound Lanes, New Ramp at Girard Avenue Interchange to Open Saturday in Philadelphia

Quote
Wednesday, September 29, and Thursday, September 30, from 8:00 PM to 5:00 AM the following morning, lane closures and periodic 15-minute traffic stoppages will be in place on southbound I-95 at various locations between the Betsy Ross Bridge and I-676 interchanges for overhead sign installations;

I presume this means replacing the orange APLs with the final signs which I'm presuming may also be APLs and a return to FHWA Gothic instead of Clearview because PA is trending back away from Clearview for now?

There is some new signage visible in this traffic cam grab.  Looks like one sign is in Clearview and the other not?

the sign on the right appears to be the one that's been there for a long time and was patched during the early phase that modified the Girard Ave exit - you can still see the greenout patch replacing "Lehigh Ave" with "Delaware Ave".

I have to say now that they opened that SB portion 95 moves so much better at all times.

When the NB portion opens 95 in that area will might actually be slowdown free.

PennDOT - District 6 News: I-95 Lane Closures at Night Next Week for Barrier Installation in Penns Landing

I thought that this was one huge project.  It is weird to see the words "high-priority" in this.
