Walnut Street motorists heading for 30th Street Station, the ramp to westbound I-76, and the ramp to eastbound Interstate 676 are detoured west to 30th Street, then right on 30th Street to Chestnut Street, and right on Chestnut Street to Schuylkill Avenue, then left on Schuylkill Avenue to Market Street and the ramps. Pedestrians may continue to use the sidewalk on the west side of Schuylkill Avenue.

Market Street motorists heading for the ramp to eastbound I-76 at Walnut Street  are detoured east on Chestnut Street to right on 23rd Street, and right on Walnut Street to the ramp.

Both detours will be in place until 2019.
