PHILADELPHIA – Lincoln Drive between Wissahickon Avenue and Ridge Avenue / Kelly Drive, will close temporarily to all southbound traffic (inbound lanes) overnight Wednesday, February 28th, announced Streets Commissioner Carlton Williams.  The following temporary restrictions are scheduled to be in effect from approximately 8:00 p.m. on Wednesday until 5:00 a.m. Thursday.

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.

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

All work will be completed and traffic will be restored by 5:00 a.m., to assure the road is open for morning “Rush Hour”.  For the duration of the work, Streets Department crews will make every effort to minimize the inconvenience to affected drivers, residents and businesses. The Streets Department thanks residents and visitors in advance for their patience and cooperation during this project.
