Philadelphia traffic: I-95 rush impacted by Kamala Harris visit, fire slows traffic on I-76

Major delays on two busy Philadelphia roadways as the afternoon rush got underway Tuesday.

A visit from Vice President Kamala Harris shut down I-95 southbound between Vine Street and the Philadelphia International Airport.

Traffic was at a standstill with delays jamming back to Academy Road.

The northbound ramp of I-95 at Vine Street was also closed.

Chickie’s & Pete’s will once again pick up the tab for several drivers headed to the shore for the unofficial start of summer.

On Interstate 76, a brush fire caused a traffic slowdown between the Girard Avenue/ Philadelphia Zoo and Spring Garden exits.

Crews were able to extinguish the fire after it was found burning between the highway and nearby train tracks.

Both highways experienced residual slow traffic conditions for some time after both the fire was out and Vice President Harris was no longer in town, but traffic is back to a normal pace.
