I-95 Delaware Expressway

This road runs through 52 miles of Southeastern Pennsylvania. Most of it runs parallel to and near the Delaware River. Construction started in 1959 in Northeast Philadelphia, and the last section opened was in 1985, from Penrose Avenue to Enterprise Avenue near the Philadelphia International Airport.

I have some pictures taken of the I-95 when it was under construction.
