Upcoming Road Work

The following streets are scheduled for street improvement work during the week of October 15th in the Germantown area, Streets Commissioner Carlton Williams announced today. The work schedule includes temporary, full street closures and parking restrictions. Weather or special events in the area may alter the resurfacing schedule.

Work will be completed in separate phases – milling and adjusting of manhole covers and resetting of utility boxes – which will take place in separate activities over the course of the week. Operations for the milling work will be performed during the day hours, between 7AM and 4PM. Milling of each street segment is expected to last approximately 1-2 days per street. Work for adjusting of manhole covers and resetting of utility boxes will be scheduled during the day between the hours of 7AM and 4PM, and is expected to last approximately 1-2 days per street.

Below are streets scheduled for milling and adjusting of manhole covers and resetting of utility boxes which are the preparation phases of the City’s resurfacing program.

• East Chelten Avenue from Sprague Street to Wyncote Avenue
• East Wister Street from Germantown Avenue to Wyncote Avenue
• Collom Street from Wakefield Street to Rufe Street

To complete the work, residents should expect parking restrictions. Temporary ‘No Parking’ signs will be posted in advance of each scheduled activity. Residents are urged to move their cars from the work sites when temporary ‘No Parking’ signs are posted, so that vehicles are not towed. In the event a car is towed, please contact your local Police District to determine its location. Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling around the work areas.
While the Streets Department will make every effort to minimize disruption to traffic, citizens are urged to plan ahead and use alternative routes when traveling in these areas. The Streets Department thanks citizens in advance for their patience and cooperation as we work to improve city streets.
