PHILADELPHIA – Streets Commissioner Carlton Williams announces an update to the work schedule for the Lincoln Drive Restoration Project. There will be overnight southbound (inbound) lane closures along Lincoln Drive between Wissahickon and Ridge Avenues from 9:00 pm to 5:00 am to allow for guide rail installation. The overnight closure is scheduled to start Monday, November 30 and will last until Wednesday, December 23. The closures and subsequent work are weather permitting.

During the nighttime hours of 9pm to 5am, on weekdays beginning, Monday, November 30, southbound traffic will be detoured at Cliveden Street. Detour signs will be posted along to direct motorists. Northbound traffic will not be affected.

The temporary closures will allow Streets Department employees and its contractors to safely access areas scheduled for work on the roadway. This work has been scheduled during the evening and into overnight hours to provide the best protection for employees, expedite repairs and minimize the disruption to motorists. 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.
