University Avenue Drawbridge Intermittent Closures for Maintenance Saturday June 1st

PHILADELPHIA – The University Avenue Drawbridge, between Civic Center Blvd. and Gray’s Ferry Avenue, will be closed intermittently to all vehicular, bicycle, and pedestrian traffic on Saturday, June 1st, between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. for maintenance repairs, announced Streets Commissioner Carlton Williams.


The temporary closures will allow Streets Department employees to safely perform routine maintenance of the mechanical parts of this drawbridge. Work will be completed by 3:00 p.m. The work schedule is weather permitting. For the duration of the work, Streets Department crews will make every effort to minimize the inconvenience to affected drivers, bicyclists, and pedestrians.  The Streets Department thanks citizens in advance for their patience and cooperation during this project.
