Constructed over a period of ten years from 1949 to 1959, a large portion of the expressway predates the 1956 introduction of Interstate Highway System; many of these portions were not built to contemporary standards.[1] The rugged terrain and limited riverfront space covered by the route has largely stymied later attempts to upgrade or widen the highway, despite the road being highly over-capacity; it has become notorious for its chronic congestion.[3] 1956 (MCMLVI) was a leap year starting on Sunday of the Gregorian calendar. ...

The Schuylkill Expressway near Conshohocken

The Schuylkill Expressway begins at the Valley Forge Interchange of the Pennsylvania Turnpike in King of Prussia. The Interstate 76 designation continues west on the Turnpike from this point, while the Turnpike from this point east is designated Interstate 276. Immediately southeast of the interchange, the expressway interchanges with U.S. Route 202, U.S. Route 422, and the King of Prussia Mall. It continues eastward though Upper Merion, interchanging with Pennsylvania Route 320 in Gulph Mills. It continues towards Conshohocken, where it interchanges with Interstate 476 and Pennsylvania Route 23.[6] Image File history File linksMetadata Size of this preview: 800 × 600 pixels Full resolution (3072 × 2304 pixel, file size: 2. ...

The highway then begins to run along a narrow cliff-top route high above its namesake Schuylkill River, which it parallels from this point. East of Conshohocken, it curves sharply southeast in a 90-degree turn locally known as the "Conshohocken Curve".[7] Continuing southeast, interchanges provide access to the Main Line community of Gladwyne and the Philadelphia neighborhood of Manayunk.[6] The Schuylkill River, pronounced SKOO-kull (IPA: ), is a river in the U.S. state of Pennsylvania. ...

History

Plans for a limited-access highway along the west bank of the Schuylkill River originated in 1932, as part of a proposed cars-only parkway system for the Philadelphia area similar to the contemporary system being built in New York City. The "Valley Forge Parkway" was to have run from Fairmount Park to Valley Forge State Park, with plans for a later extension to Reading via Pottstown. However, planning for the proposed parkway system stalled and the plan was eventually abandoned.[1][3] The Schuylkill River, pronounced SKOO-kull (IPA: ), is a river in the U.S. state of Pennsylvania. ...

Planning for today's expressway began in 1947, when the city of Philadelphia approved plans to develop a freeway connecting the city with the terminus of the planned Philadelphia Extension of the Pennsylvania Turnpike near Valley Forge. The highway was designed by engineers Michael Rapuano, who had previously aided in the design of the Garden State Parkway, and Bill Allen of Gannett Fleming. The new expressway largely followed the earlier planned parkway route from Valley Forge to Fairmount Park, while also extending into southern Philadelphia and across the Delaware River into New Jersey. Two alternatives were proposed south of University City: one routing would continue along the west bank of the river into Southwest Philadelphia to its confluence near Philadelphia International Airport, where it would tunnel underneath the Delaware to Paulsboro, New Jersey; the other would cross the Schuylkill south of University City and bisect South Philadelphia, crossing the Delaware into Gloucester City, New Jersey. Planned expansions of the airport in the path of the former proposal led to adoption of the routing through South Philadelphia.[1][3] Image File history File linksMetadata Download high-resolution version (1064x788, 1016 KB) File links The following pages on the English Wikipedia link to this file (pages on other projects are not listed): Toys for Tots User:JVinocur/Images Metadata This file contains additional information, probably added from the digital camera...

Construction of the road began in 1949. The road was completed in stages, with a short segment near King of Prussia opening in 1951 along with the Turnpike's Philadelphia Extension, with the section from King of Prussia to Conshohocken opening a year later. The section between Conshohocken and City Avenue opened in 1954. The Walt Whitman Bridge opened in 1957. The expressway was completed through Fairmount Park in 1959, and in 1960 the entire expressway was complete with the opening of the segment through University City.[3] 1949 (MCMXLIX) was a common year starting on Saturday (the link is to a full 1949 calendar). ...

Immediately after its completion, operational studies performed on the Schuylkill Expressway found that the route would be unable to cope with the area's growing traffic demands, due to the many substandard design elements and compromises incorporated to cope with the rugged, difficult routing of the road. In 1962, plans were announced for a parallel expressway along the east bank of the Schuylkill, known as the Manayunk Expressway; however, these plans were quickly withdrawn due to substantial opposition.[1] An alternative plan was then introduced to widen the entire highway to eight lanes in time for the United States Bicentennial in 1976; however, these plans were also shelved due to local disapproval. A scaled-down widening project was successfully undertaken from 1969 to 1972 to widen a short section of the road to six lanes through Fairmount Park.[1] Image File history File links No higher resolution available. ...

In the decades since its opening, congestion on the expressway has steadily increased. Plans to expand the expressway to eight lanes by building an upper deck, including high-occupancy toll lanes, were advocated by former Pennsylvania House Speaker John Perzel, but have not come to fruition due to a lack of funding.[3] A high-occupancy toll (HOT) is a toll enacted on single-occupant vehicles who wish to use lanes or entire roads that are designated for the use of high-occupancy vehicles (HOVs, also known as carpools). ... . ...

Pennsylvania @ NorthEastRoads.com - Interstate 76 Schuylkill Expressway East (4618 words)
The former cloverleaf interchange between the Schuylkill Expressway and U.S. 202 saw upgrading between 2001 and 2004.
The Schuylkill Expressway is routed wholly through Fairmount Park at this point and the next three exits serve the park grounds.
The Schuylkill Expressway expands to six overall lanes between Grays Ferry Road and 28th Street with the addition of two auxiliary lanes.
expressway: Definition, Synonyms and Much More from Answers.com (620 words)
Other examples of this is the North Central Expressway in Dallas, Texas (part of the road is actually a freeway; another part is an arterial road), the Gardiner Expressway in Toronto and the Palmetto Expressway in Miami, Florida.
Even though expressways are often free of private driveways, occasional exceptions of these include direct driveways to gas stations at intersections; and also, direct driveways present toward the ending of "expressway mode".
The vast majority of expressways in either sense are built by state or provincial governments, or by private companies which then operate them as toll roads pursuant to a license from the government.
