That section actually has similar issues as the Market Street. The bridge at Walnut street goes over Delaware Ave, whereas Dock street is at grade. You can't cap fully over Delaware Ave because of the Sheraton on the other side of the street. So you'd have to somehow cap over just 95, while connecting the north end with the bridge on Walnut, and slope it down in both a south and east direction to be level with Dock street and Delaware ave.
