STREETS DEPARTMENT ANNOUNCES CONSTRUCTION UPDATE FOR THE NORTH AMERICAN STREET STREETSCAPE PROJECT
Motorists Should Plan Ahead and Expect Delays

PHILADELPHIA – Streets Commissioner Carlton Williams announced today that construction work will be moving into the next major phase for the North American Street Streetscape Project, starting Monday, July 9th, 2018.

Temporary concrete barriers will be placed on American Street from Oxford Street to Susquehanna Avenue to allow for the removal of existing railroad track and construction of Green Storm water Infrastructure within the roadway median. Motorists should allow for additional travel time as there will be one lane of traffic maintained through the work area. Motorists can also expect to encounter changed traffic patterns throughout this area.

Work is being performed by Tony DePaul and Son Contractors.  The value of the construction contract is $26.4 M, and it is being funded with a Federal TIGER Grant as well as Federal Funds and Streets Department and Water Department funds.

It also thanks citizens in advance for their patience and cooperation during the upcoming construction phase.
