PHILADELPHIA - Officials in Pennsylvania confirmed Wednesday that Interstate 95 will reopen this weekend, less than two weeks after a gasoline tanker crash and fire caused the roadway to collapse."Based on the tremendous progress these crews made over the weekend and the time it takes to complete the remaining steps, I can now say that we will have I-95 back open this weekend," Governor Josh Shapiro said.

Shapiro and PennDOT Secretary Mike Carroll lauded the "round the clock" work of road crews to complete the expedited project ahead of schedule.

A section of the northbound lanes of the elevated highway collapsed early June 11 after a tractor-trailer hauling gasoline flipped over on an off-ramp and caught fire.

State transportation officials said the driver, who was killed, lost control around a curve. The resulting damage necessitated demolition of the southbound lanes as well, officials said.Pennsylvania’s plan for a quick interim fix has involved trucking in 2,000 tons of lightweight recycled glass nuggets to fill in the collapsed area, avoiding supply-chain delays for other materials, officials said.

The jury agreed with prosecutors that Bowers — who spent six months planning the attack and has since expressed regret that he didn’t kill more people — had formed the requisite legal intent to kill.Bowers’ lawyers argued that his ability to form intent was impaired by mental illness and a delusional belief that he could stop a genocide of white people by killing Jews.Testimony is now expected to shift to the impact of Bowers’ crimes on survivors and the victims’ loved ones.Bowers, 50, a truck driver from suburban Baldwin, killed members of three congregations who had gathered at the Tree of Life synagogue on Oct.
