Pothole problems persist on I-95
PHILADELPHIA Highway repair crews tackled an I-95 crater - twice - on Saturday after tires were damaged on several vehicles that struck the hole.
Crews were on the scene by 12:30 a.m., a PennDot spokesman said. But the hole, on a bridge deck, was so deep that the patch did not hold. The section of I-95, north of the Girard Avenue exit, is under construction, so by morning the contractor was on the site assessing the road and doing a permanent repair.
During the work, the right travel lane of the southbound road section and the deceleration lane for the exit were closed. The exit itself remained open.
