Update on Street Improvement Work for Front Street

Philadelphia – Streets Commissioner Carlton Williams announced today that temporary street closures and parking restrictions to accommodate street resurfacing will continue the week of June 22nd on Front Street from Ellen Street to Kensington Avenue (Police District 26th).  The resurfacing work for these streets is expected to be completed by end of June.

Milling operations have been completed.  Work for adjusting manhole covers and resetting utility boxes will continue over the next few days, and will be scheduled during the day between the hours of 7AM and 5PM, and is expected to last approximately one week per street.  Paving operations during week of June 15th will be performed during daytime hours.

Starting the week of June 22 there will be a change in operations for the final paving.  Paving will be performed by the contractor during the nighttime hours between 7PM and 5AM.  The final paving of each street segment is expected to last approximately 1-2 nights per street.

To complete the work, residents should expect parking restrictions.  Temporary ‘No Parking’ signs will be posted in advance of each scheduled activity.  Cars must be removed from the work sites during the hours posted on the ‘No-Parking’ signs to avoid being towed.  In the event a car is towed, residents should contact their local Police District to determine its location.  Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling around the work areas. 

This work is being completed by James J. Anderson Construction Co, Inc., and is part of the City Wide Resurfacing CW106 project.  The project is being financed with Federal and City funding.


The Streets Department thanks the residents in advance for their patience and cooperation during this project. For more information on the City’s Paving Program, visit or check the progress of paving across the city using the PavePHL tool found on, a platform which allows the Streets Department to communicate to the public about paving and other Department services.  Residents are asked not to approach employees or contractors for information as they practice social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic.
