Beginning at 9:00 p.m. on Fridays, motorists using Lincoln Drive should expect to be detoured between Ridge and Wissahickon Avenues. The closure will continue throughout the weekend, with Lincoln Drive reopening to traffic no later than 6:00 a.m. on Mondays. Motorists are encouraged to use alternative routes during this phase of the project.
Variable message boards will display closure announcements at major approaches to Lincoln Drive providing motorists advance notification of the closure. Overhead digital boards found along the I-76 corridor will display Lincoln Drive closure announcements courtesy of PennDOT.
The contractor, A.P. Construction Inc., and the City of Philadelphia expect construction for the Lincoln Drive Restoration Project to continue through December 2019. The Streets Department thanks the citizens in advance for their patience and cooperation during the upcoming construction phase.
