I-295/I-76/Route 42 Direct Connection

Alternatives Considered

Alternative H1
(short list)

Alternative H1 is almost identical to Alternative G2. The primary difference is the configuration of Ramps B and C. Ramps B and C exit from I-295 from the right. Ramp C generally follows (within 150'±) the existing Ramp C alignment (Al Jo's curve) and passes under I-76 and Ramp F before merging with Route 42 southbound. The substandard radius on the existing Ramp C is replaced with a larger radius. Ramp B splits from Ramp C to meet I-76 northbound.

A summary of design features of this alternative are:

  • Southbound I-295 placed above northbound I-295 using a double-decker configuration
  • I-295 crosses over Route 42/I-76 on a viaduct on a skew
  • I-295 on viaduct over Ramp C and Browning Road
  • I -295 on viaduct over Ramp D
  • Ramp D on viaduct over I-76/Route 42
  • Two lane ramps except for Ramp F
  • Removes express/local lanes on I-76 westbound
  • I-295 posted speed limit: 55 mph (design speed: 60 mph)
  • Ramp speed limits: 40 mph (design speed: 45 mph)
