I-676(E-W, S-N)/US 30(E-W) Duplex

676 30

Interstate 676 and United States Route 30 join for 3 miles through Philadelphia and Camden in Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania, and Camden County, New Jersey. I-676 is signed east-west in Pennsylvania and north-south in New Jersey.


Timothy Reichard 5/17/03

Eastbound on I-676/US 30 in Philadelphia. About a mile from the Pennsylvania/New Jersey border, I-676/US 30 exits off of the Vine Street Expressway, which continues ahead as SR 0676 to connect to I-95. I-676 is one of the few interstates to exit its own freeway and then use surface streets. After a traffic light, I-676/US 30 crosses the Delaware River.

 


Jeff Snyder

Eastbound on I-676/US 30 on the Benjamin Franklin Bridge, which crosses the Delaware River and links Philadelphia to Camden. The bridge and its approaches disqualify for interstate freeway standards. I-676 is one of the few interstates to have a non-freeway section in its middle.

 


Jeff Snyder

The bridge is 1.8 miles long, connecting to freeway sections of I-676 at each end. The maximum speed limit is 35 mph.

 


Jeff Snyder

US 30 splits off to the left one the east side of the bridge, while I-676 turns south through Camden to meet I-76.

 


Jeff Snyder

On the New Jersey shore, eastbound traffic bypasses the tollbooth, while westbound traffic must stop and pay. The speed limit reduces to 20 mph for eastbound traffic as it loops around the booth.

Back in Pennsylvania, these guide signs are posted on SR 0676, the connector from I-95 to I-676/US 30.

 


Timothy Reichard 5/18/03

Westbound on SR 0676 west. The ramp to I-676/US 30 east has exited, and this freeway leads to the true I-676/US 30 expressway ahead.

 


Timothy Reichard 5/18/03

Now on I-676/US 30 west, the Vine Street Expressway. The divider is nothing more than a barrier. The indirect exit to PA 611/Broad Street is just ahead, which leads to surface streets a block away from PA 611.

 


Timothy Reichard 5/18/03

I-676/US 30 cuts through the central Philadelphia street grid, so many streets follow overpasses over the expressway, much like US 40/Old I-170 in Baltimore.

 


Timothy Reichard 5/18/03

On the west side of center city Philadelphia, I-676 ends at I-76, and US 30 west follows I-76 west for a couple of exits.
