Philly DNC RV/ Motorhome travelling restrictions

Below is the exert from the Philadelphia traffic advisory for the DNC in Philly this week, THIS does include Motorhomes and RV Trailers for Personal use not just commercially listed.

I-95 commercial vehicle restrictions will be coordinated between the Pennsylvania State Police, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation and local jurisdictions. Beginning at 12 p.m. on Saturday, July 23, until midday on Friday, July 29, commercial vehicles weighing more than five tons will be prohibited from traveling on Interstate 95 between Exit 13 (Interstate 76 West/Route 291/Valley Forge) and Exit 22 (Interstate 676) in Philadelphia, PA. In addition, the northbound and southbound entrance ramps to I-95 between Exit 13 and Exit 22 in Philadelphia will be closed to commercial vehicles over five tons. Commercial vehicles will be directed to use arterial roads to reach either I-95 north or south beyond Exit 13 or Exit 22.

The following are the posted detours that drivers of vehicles over five tons will be directed to follow to return to I-95 once they exit the interstate:

From I-95 north: Route 291 (Penrose Avenue) east, to 26th Street, to Interstate 76 west, to Interstate 676 east; and

From I-95 south: I-676 west, to I-76 east, to 26th Street, to Route 291(Penrose Avenue) west.

The following types of commercial vehicles will be restricted from traveling on this part of I-95 during the DNC:

Delivery trucks
Utility vehicles
Parcel trucks
Small dump trucks
Flatbed and stake trucks
Refrigerated and box trucks
Large delivery trucks
Refuse trucks
Cement mixers
All tractor and trailer combinations including double trailers
Motor homes
Recreational trailers operated for personal use

Commuters and commercial truck drivers are advised to allow additional time for travel on I-76, I-676 and Route 291 over the next week because these highways will experience heavier traffic volumes due to commercial vehicles being diverted off I-95.

Seems like a lot of inconvenience for such a non-event. Thanks for the heads up.

The facility is about 1000 feet from the Route 95 freeway. So they are obviously thinking blast area and collateral damage type scenarios.

Now if this was for a football game, concert or base ball game I can see it. Not for something like this.
