Lincoln Drive Restoration Project: SB Single Lane Closures Resume on Monday, August 17

PHILADELPHIA – An update to the work schedule for the Lincoln Drive Restoration Project includes the continuation of a series of single lane closures to allow for repairs, announced Streets Commissioner Carlton Williams. The closures and subsequent work are weather permitting.

Beginning Monday, August 17th, single lane closures are scheduled in the southbound direction along Lincoln Drive between Wissahickon and Ridge Avenues to allow for guide rail post layout and anchor bolt installation.  Guide rail installation is anticipated to follow. The closures will be in effect from 9am to 5pm on the weekdays.  

The temporary closures will allow Streets Department employees and its contractors to safely access areas scheduled for work on the roadway. For the duration of the work, Streets Department crews will make every effort to minimize the inconvenience to affected motorists.  The Streets Department thanks residents in advance for their patience and cooperation.
