Krewstown Road - Temporary Closure September 7th for Maintenance

PHILADELPHIA – Krewstown Road, between Algon Avenue and Bloomfield Avenue, will be closed from 7:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, September 7th for routine maintenance, announced Streets Commissioner Carlton Williams. The closure is weather permitting. If the work is completed sooner, the road will be opened ahead of schedule.


Northbound traffic on Krewstown Road will be detoured at Algon Avenue.  Southbound traffic will be detoured at Bloomfield Avenue.  Bustleton Avenue and Veree Road parallel Krewstown Road and can be used as alternative routes. No detour will be posted for this short-term closure.  SEPTA bus traffic and emergency vehicles will be permitted through the work zone to minimize disruption to mass transit and maintain safety.


The temporary closure will allow City employees to complete repairs to the guide-rail along this winding road.  This work has been scheduled for Saturday in order to expedite repairs, minimize disruption to motorists, and provide a safe work environment for the work crew. 


All work will be completed, and traffic will be restored by 4:00 p.m. For the duration of the work, Streets Department crews will make every effort to minimize the inconvenience to affected drivers, residents, and businesses.  The Streets Department thanks residents in advance for their patience and cooperation during this project.
