Ramps connecting I-95 with Pennsylvania Turnpike set to open. John Rawlins reports during Action News at 5pm on September 21, 2018.

Tonight is the night the two new flyover ramps are opening connecting I-95 with the Pennsylvania Turnpike.

One will go from the northbound side of 95 to the eastbound side of the Turnpike. The other will go from the westbound side of the Turnpike to 95 southbound.

The Pennsylvania Turnpike will become I-95 going into New Jersey.

The opening will also mean the entire length of Interstate 95, from Maine to Miami, will be complete. Construction on the highway started in 1957.

Though this is good news, there is some bad news.
