From the Streets Commissioner: Temporary, Single Lane Closures Beginning the Week of June 11 for Lincoln Drive Restoration Project Night Work Detour Continues between Ridge and Wayne PHILADELPHIA – Streets Commissioner Carlton Williams announced an update on the construction schedule for the Lincoln Drive Restoration Project. Beginning the week of June 11, construction will require the use of temporary, single lane closures between Wayne and Wissahickon Avenues during the off-peak hours of 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Temporary single lane closures will be scheduled, as required, throughout the week by the contractor. Night time closures along Lincoln Drive will continue between Ridge Avenue and Wayne Avenue allowing for the installation of a new sewer at Harvey Street as well as work in the southern section of the roadway. During the overnight hours of 9 p.m. to 6 a.m., motorists using Lincoln Drive should expect to be detoured between Ridge Avenue and Wayne Avenue (see map below). Because the work will involve full closures of the roadway, motorists traveling both north and south will need to use Ridge Avenue and Walnut Lane as an alternate route. Completion of the entire Lincoln Drive Restoration Project will require day and night work. For the majority of the project, two inbound lanes will be maintained for the morning peak hour traffic and two outbound lanes will be maintained during the evening peak hour traffic. Night work from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. will involve full closures of the roadway during the overnight hours with signed detour routes in place. Because of the nature of the work there will be some overnight and weekend closures of the drive and there also may be some additional lane closures during peak hours. Construction is expected to be completed by the end of 2019. The Streets Department thanks the citizens in advance for their patience and cooperation during the upcoming construction phase.
