Highway planning gave precedence to suburban automobiles—not urban residents or pedestrians.
The committee proposed that I should be built below street grade with a cover to block it from view and preserve pedestrian access to the river. After many years of wrangling, the state agreed to an amended plan in Instead of a continuous six-block cover, the expressway would be covered in two sections: In Southwark, a working-class neighborhood on the South Philadelphia riverfront, construction of the expressway would prove more destructive.
In , Mayor Richardson Dilworth was heckled by 1, angry Southwark residents when he attended a neighborhood forum to discuss the highway. Unlike the well-connected residents of Society Hill, they were unable to modify the proposed expressway. In , demolition began in Southwark, where I soon became a physical barrier between residents and the riverfront which had once provided jobs for thousands of area longshoremen.
Construction of I was a massive project that took over a decade to complete. While some city residents complain that it disrupts urban life, it remains a vital link between Philadelphia and its suburbs. While the first section of I—a six-mile stretch from Bucks Country to Woodhaven Road in Northeast Philadelphia—opened in , delays continued to plague the project. There were contentious battles over where to place entrance and exit ramps in Central and South Philadelphia.
Worried that I would bring undesirable development to pastoral Princeton, Hopewell, and Montgomery Townships, wealthy residents banded together to fight the planned highway.
In , plans for the final segment of I were scrapped; the expressway, designed to run continuously from Maine to Florida, stopped in central New Jersey. In , work began on a new link between I and the Pennsylvania Turnpike in Bucks County, which would allow drivers to bypass the interrupted section of I in Mercer County. When completed, the project would finally provide an unbroken highway connection between Philadelphia and New York.
The Philadelphia segment of I was constructed along the Delaware River from to Some city residents complain that the highway cuts the city off from the waterfront and inhibits development in nearby neighborhoods. Opposition aside, I ultimately became a vital connection between Philadelphia and its neighboring cities and suburbs. The construction of the highway helped accelerate growth in Bucks County, where the population grew by thirty percent from to Developers built sprawling suburbs on former farmland.
New business parks sprung up near I exits in Bensalem and Bristol, and by , nearly 30, Philadelphia residents commuted out of the city daily to jobs in the area. Traffic on I grew along with Bucks County. In , 90, vehicles per day used the expressway in Pennsylvania. By , the same stretch carried , cars and 19, trucks per day. In the s, I came under criticism again—yet this time, its detractors were not neighborhood residents, but urbanists concerned with environmental and lifestyle issues.
Many Philadelphia planners argued that covering or removing the expressway would restore waterfront access and create acres of new valuable real estate. Put a deck over it. Just get it out of our sight. Dylan Gottlieb , a Ph. The History Press, Express Highway Politics, , Rev. University of Tennessee Press, In , I was a year-old new driver. I was opened, then ripped up and rebuilt.
I remember driving on it thru this construction. Since then, I thru Philly has been under construction, continuously, even up to the day I am writing this. You can get in your car right now, and drive thru the construction. I love Philly, but it is corrupt — to the core!
