Temporary road closure scheduled for overnight Thursday, October 1 Along Lincoln Drive

PHILADELPHIA – Lincoln Drive, between Wissahickon Avenue and Ridge Avenue / Kelly Drive, will have the “inbound” or southbound lanes closed temporarily on Thursday, October 1st, Streets Commissioner Carlton Williams announced today.  The following temporary closure is scheduled to be in effect from approximately 8:00 PM on Thursday until 5:00 AM on Friday:

  • Southbound Lincoln Drive traffic will be detoured at Wissahickon Avenue.  Detour signs will be posted along Wissahickon Avenue, Walnut Lane, and Ridge Avenue to direct traffic to the end of the closure.
  • Northbound traffic will not be affected.

The temporary closure will allow City employees to safely work along this winding stretch of road.  This work has been scheduled for nighttime hours in order to expedite repairs, minimize disruption to motorists, and provide a safe work environment for the workers.  Police Department assistance will be on call to help maintain a safe traffic flow in the area.

All work will be completed and the lane will be restored by 5:00 AM in time for rush hour traffic.  For the duration of the work, Streets Department crews will make every effort to minimize the inconvenience to effected drivers, residents, and businesses.  The Streets Department thanks citizens in advance for their patience and cooperation during this project.
