I-295 northbound Exit 26

I-295 northbound Exit 26 ramp to I-76 westbound will be closed tomorrow, Friday, November 18 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. for emergency attenuator repairs. 

The following detour will be in place:

I-295 northbound Exit 26 to I-76 westbound detour:

  • Motorists traveling on I-295 northbound will be directed to continue on I-295 north to Exit 27
  • Take the left Exit 27 ramp to I-76 westbound

The $180 million federally-funded Missing Moves project will build new ramps connecting Route 42 northbound to I-295 southbound, and I-295 northbound to Route 42 southbound in order to allow for the direct movement of traffic between the two roadways.

These are commonly known as the “missing moves.”

The project will also include the demolition and reconstruction of the Creek Road Bridge over I-295 between Route 42 and Almonesson Road.

The majority of the project will be built off of the roadways and will have minimal impact on traffic on Route 42 and I-295. 

The project is expected to be completed in late 2023.
