I-95 Pennsylvania Welcome Center closes for Reconstruction

The I-95 Welcome Center has closed for reconstruction.

With 15 Welcome Centers scattered throughout the state of Pennsylvania, you are never far from a friendly face offering plenty of local information.  For the next year or so, though, you won’t be able to find one as you enter Pennsylvania from Delaware along I 95.  The I-95 Welcome Center, built in 1971, closed in April and is expected to remain closed for reconstruction until May 1, 2011.

Statewide the PA Welcome Centers have approximately 3.7 million visitors per year. The I-95 space needed both upgraded facilities and a larger space to handle the expected demand.  They are investing $5.9 million to replace the two existing structures with one larger facility containing about 8500 square feet of space.  The new center will provide restrooms, tourist information, vending machines, and picnic facilities.

For the next year, travelers will still have plenty of options to obtain visitor information throughout the region.  In Philadelphia, the Independence Visitor Center continues to serve the entire greater Philadelphia Region.  In Delaware County, the Brandywine Conference and Visitors Bureau, located at the intersection of Route 202 and the Beaver Valley Rd in Chadds Ford (just across from WAWA and just north of the Delaware State line), will continue to serve Delaware County and the entire Brandywine Valley.

It is always a great time to visit the area and information is always available.  If you ever need any information or have any questions, let me know.
