PennDOT Rebuilds I-95 with Recycled Bottles in 12 Days

Posted October 1, 2023, Length: 24:22

On June 11, 2023, a gasoline truck caught fire under I-95 in Philadelphia, essentially melting a major section of the primary roadway through the center of the Northeast Corridor. Facing what looked like a months-long reconstruction process, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation assembled a quick action team to implement an extraordinary repair effort, built on interagency cooperation and a unique recycled material, restoring I-95 to full use in only 12 days.

Telling us about this quick rebuild is Lou Belmonte, District Executive for the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation.
