Important PennDOT Notice

PennDOT Posts Public Notice to Solicit Comment on How Proposed Improvements to I-95 in Philadelphia Benefit the Frankford Arsenal

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) is soliciting public comment on a Public Notice published on the Interstate 95 project website ( that describes the proposed improvements to I-95 in the Bridesburg, Frankford and Wissinoming sections of Philadelphia and how those improvements will benefit the Frankford Arsenal property.

Because the Arsenal is listed in the National Register of Historic Places, PennDOT is required to prepare a Section 4(f) environmental study to determine if the proposed improvements will return the Arsenal to a physical condition that is better than that which presently exists. The Section 4(f) study contains a “finding”, contained in the Public Notice, that the proposed improvements will have a “Net Beneficial Use” of the Arsenal property.

PennDOT will incorporate the public comments on the “Section 4(f) Net Benefit Finding” in its submission of the required Section 4(f) Environmental Document to the Federal Highway Administration.

The Public Notice can be found at

Public comments may be submitted by January 29, 2021in writing, by email, or by phone to Colleen Meiswich. Those without internet access may contact Colleen Meiswich to obtain a copy of the Public Notice.
