Streets Department Schedules Maintenance Work on Lombard Street

Streets Department Schedules Maintenance Work on Lombard Street
Daytime Work Scheduled Saturday, September 15th  

PHILADELPHIA - The Streets Department will perform roadway resurfacing on Lombard Street between 2nd and 9th Streets on Saturday, September 15th announced Streets Commissioner Carlton Williams. The scheduled work is contingent upon the weather.

Work on the stretch of roadway will take place between 7:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Complete closure of the street is expected throughout the day in order to allow crews to make necessary roadway improvements.  Motorists are encouraged to use Spruce Street as an alternative route. Detour signs will not be posted. Accommodations for SEPTA buses with normal routes on Locust Street will be coordinated with SEPTA. Visit SEPTA’s website for route changes and detours.

Residents are urged not to park vehicles on work sites where temporary "No Parking" signs are posted to avoid vehicles being towed.  In the event a car is towed, please contact the Ninth Police District at 215-686-3090 to determine its location.

The Streets Department thanks citizens in advance for their patience and cooperation during this project.
