Businesses impacted by I-95 collapse bouncing back: 'It's definitely been busier'
PHILADELPHIA - Businesses impacted by the fiery collapse of Interstate 95 earlier this month say they are starting to see normal volume of customers again following the highway's expedited reopening. Alison Korbik, Catering Manager at Sweet Lucy's Smokehouse, told FOX 29 that business has "definitely been busier" since the once cratered overpass was repaired with an innovative fix.Investigators say on the morning of June 11 truck driver Nathan Moody, 53, was navigating a curve on the Cottman off-ramp when his tanker truck overturned and caught fire. Soon, the southbound stretch of the highway collapsed, killing Moody and miraculously sparing other motorists and bystanders on the heavily trafficked artery of highway. Most Northeast Philadelphia residents are happy I-95 is reopened and traffis returning to normal.The collapse spiraled traffic into chaos, with ever-changing detours and reroutes designed to navigate motorists that sometimes sent motorists into unfamiliar parts of the city. Nearby businesses, like Sweet Lucy's Smokehouse and Sharkeys Grill and Ale House, had their customer bases stunted by having a main route to the restaurants severed. "We did have a lot of people come during that time and say that they weren't going to come here because of the closure even though there were other ways to get to us," Korabik said.Pennsylvania state leaders, together with the federal government, worked around the clock and concocted a plan for a temporary fix that would ensure the safe reopening of I-95. Meanwhile, businesses that weren't impacted by the collapse showed some neighborly hospitality by promoting the businesses that were feeling the pinch. I-95 COLLAPSE COVERAGE"If you're nearby and it's on your route, stop on

"He didn't drink, he didn't smoke, he damn-sure didn't use any drugs." RELATED COVERAGEOn Friday, the same day temporary lanes opened on the collapsed stretch of the roadway, officials announced donations to support Moody's daughter. According to Pennsylvania Governor Josh Shapiro's office, the Philadelphia Flyers, Eagles, Phillies, 76ers and Union joined forces to donate $50,000 to Moody's family to build a trust for his daughter. The cousin of a truck driver whose truck flipped and sparked a fire that destroyed part of I-95 in Philadelphia is searching for answers.

I-95 collapse: Officials announce plan to backfill, pave damaged Philadelphia section to open temporary path
PHILADELPHIA - Just days after a tanker carrying thousands of gallons of gasoline crashed under I-95, causing part of an overpass to collapse, state and local leaders announced the timeline for its reconstruction plan. On Sunday, a tanker truck carrying 8,500 gallons of gasoline was traveling in the northbound lanes when it overturned on the curve of an off-ramp. The crash caused gasoline to leak into the roadway and sparked a large fire under I-95 at Cottman Avenue, causing it to collapse into the roadway underneath it.  Newly obtained surveillance video captured the moment a tanker truck carrying 8,500 gallons of gasoline crashed and caught fire underneath I-95 in Northeast Philadelphia. The resulting fire caused a portion of the roadway to collapse.The collapse left the tanker operator, 53-year-old Nathaniel Moody, whose family says he was an experienced driver with more than 10 years of experience, dead. It also left the northbound and southbound lanes of I-95 closed between the Woodhaven Road and Aramingo Avenue exits. The damage has caused delays and traffic nightmares for commuters in Philadelphia, the Delaware Valley, and across the northeast. The cousin of a truck driver whose truck flipped and sparked a fire that destroyed part of I-95 in Philadelphia is searching for answers.

I-95 collapse: Live camera shows real-time progress of interstate reconstruction
PHILADELPHIA - As the reconstruction of the collapsed section of I-95 begins in Philadelphia, local officials are keeping residents and commuters up to date with a live camera of the site. A section of the northbound lanes on the interstate collapsed on Sunday morning after a tanker truck carrying thousands of gallons of gasoline crashed at an off-ramp and burst into flames. The damage also made a portion of the southbound lanes unsafe for use, causing six lanes to be blocked off and creating traffic nightmares across the city and area. >> I-95 collapse: Officials announce plan to backfill, pave damaged Philadelphia section to open temporary pathThe tanker's driver, identified as 53-year-old Nathaniel Moody, did not survive, officials say. Quick funding from federal partners and a disaster declaration from Pennsylvania Governor Josh Shapiro helped crews start working on plans to repair the damaged highway. RELATED HEADLINESOn Wednesday, officials announced a plan to backfill the missing area with a recycled glass aggregate made in Pennsylvania. After the area is backfilled, it will be paved to allow motorists to return to the road as a separate bridge is built. Pennsylvania will truck in 2,000 tons of lightweight glass nuggets to help quickly rebuild a collapsed section of Interstate 95 in Philadelphia and crews will work 24 hours a day until they can reopen the critical commercial artery, officials said Wednesday."This approach will allow us to avoid delays through the shipment and supply chain issues and pursue a simple, quicker path," Shapiro said.
