BULLETIN: Section of Major Interstate Collapses in Philadelphia

DEVELOPING STORY: Authorities say a vehicle caught fire underneath Interstate 95 in Philadelphia causing a large section of an overpass to collapse. The fire also caused explosions and there were reports of flames coming out of manhole covers in the area.

Dominick Mireles, director of the Philadelphia Office of Emergency Management, said at a news conference on Sunday morning that the recovery would require “heavy construction.”

“Today’s going to be a long day,” he said. “Obviously, with 95 northbound gone and southbound questionable, it’s going to be even longer than that.”

Interstate 95 is a major north-south corridor and travel is expected to be disrupted for a significant amount of time as repairs are made.

All north and southbound lanes are closed for about 3 to 4 miles between Bridge Street and Academy Road in Northeast Philadelphia.

“I-95 will be impacted for a long time, for a long time,” said Philadelphia managing director Tumar Alexander.
