STREETS DEPARTMENT SCHEDULES MAINTENANCE WORK ON LINCOLN DRIVE
PHILADELPHIA – Lincoln Drive between Ridge Avenue/Kelly Drive and Wissahickon Avenue will be closed temporarily from 8:00 pm on Wednesday, January 25 until 5:00 AM on Thursday, January 26, Streets Commissioner Carlton Williams announced today.
  • Southbound Lincoln Drive traffic will be blocked at Wissahickon Drive. A marked detour will carry traffic to the end of Lincoln Drive at Ridge Avenue by way of Walnut Lane.
  • Northbound traffic will be blocked at all entrances to the south end of Lincoln Drive. No detour is provided for northbound traffic, due to the numerous entrances. Suggested detours are Walnut Lane or Schoolhouse Lane.
  • Due to the volume of workers and equipment, pedestrian and bicycle traffic are also prohibited during this closure.
The temporary closure will allow City employees to safely work along this winding stretch of road. Police Department assistance will be on call to help maintain a safe traffic flow in the area.
All work will be completed and traffic restored by 5:00 AM. The Streets Department thanks citizens in advance for their patience and cooperation during this project.
