Hoarding is a serious problem amongst older adults. For National Pat Rack Day, learn how to help:

    5 Methods to Help Senior Hoarding
    It may seem like the elderly individuals within your life retain so many material items. With age comes great clutter. Often, belongings increase over the years; therefore, the more years a person has within their life, the more possessions they may own, generally speaking. There are various reasons why senior citizens are prone to hoarding.

FYI - Night Work Detour Starts May 14 for Lin...

FYI - Night Work Detour Starts May 14 for Lincoln Drive Restoration Project PHILADELPHIA – Streets Commissioner Carlton Williams announced an update on the construction schedule for the Lincoln Drive Restoration Project. Beginning the week of May 14, night time closures are anticipated between Wissahickon Avenue and Wayne Avenue to allow for the installation of a new sewer at Harvey Street. During the overnight hours of 9 p.m. to 6 a.m., motorists using Lincoln Drive should expect to be detoured between Wissahickon Avenue and Wayne Avenue (see Map 1 below). Because the work will involve full closures of the roadway, south-bound drivers will need to use Ridge Avenue and Walnut Lane as an alternate route. North-bound drivers will be diverted to Wissahickon Avenue. There will be signed detour routes in place. Map 1 – Overnight lane closures from 9:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. The contractor, A.P. Construction, Inc., has been completing survey and layout work and other pre-construction related activities since Monday, April 30. Construction and detour signage are being installed during the week of May 7. 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. These events have not been scheduled yet but will be publicized in advance of the additional closures. The Lincoln Drive Restoration Project includes various improvements to Lincoln Drive between Ridge Avenue and Wayne Avenue. Roadway improvements include milling and resurfacing, replacement of the guide rail and median barrier, and other drainage improvements. Along with these roadway improvements, a new architectural finish will be placed on the retaining wall, just north of Forbidden Drive. This project will also include various Vision Zero pedestrian upgrades, including new ADA curb ramps for accessibility at all intersections along this section of Lincoln Drive, as well as an asphalt walking path that will extend north of Wissahickon Avenue between Lincoln Drive and Rittenhouse Street. The project also includes traffic improvements, such as traffic signal mast arms and poles, at all five signalized intersections along this section of Lincoln Drive and at the intersection of Rittenhouse Street & Wissahickon Avenue. The planned traffic calming measures include use of transverse thermoplastic rumble strips in advance of curves and along medians, reducing travel lanes width in selected segments, and installing thermoplastic legends with speed limit designation in pavement throughout the corridor. Construction is expected to be completed by the end of 2019. The value of the construction contract is $12.1M, and it is being funded with 80 percent Federal and 20 percent City funds. The Streets Department thanks citizens in advance for their patience and cooperation during the upcoming construction phase.
