PHILADELPHIA – Streets Commissioner Carlton Williams announced today that street improvement work will occur in the Northwest section of the city during the week of September 30th. The work schedule includes temporary, full street closures and parking restrictions. Weather or special events in the area may alter the work schedule.

Residents can stay updated on the progress of their street using the PavePHL tool, the City’s new web map paving tracker which allows residents to go online and view the progress of a street scheduled for paving. It is one of the four components housed on the StreetSmartPHL.phila.gov platform which allows the Streets Department to communicate to the public about some of its most prominent and visible core services – paving, permitting, snow plowing and trash and recycling collections. The site is in its beta phase. Feedback about its use and/or how we can make improvements is encouraged.

This street improvement work is related to the initial phase of the City’s street resurfacing program. Work will be completed in separate phases – milling, adjusting of manhole covers, and resetting of utility boxes – which will take place in separate activities over the course of the week.

Streets Scheduled for Milling

Operations for the milling work will be performed during the day hours, between 7A.M. and 4P.M. 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 7A.M. and 4P.M., and is expected to last approximately 1-2 days per street. The entire paving process takes three to five weeks. Schedule of operations for the final resurfacing on these streets will be announced via a separate press release. Streets scheduled for this week include:

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.

The work is being completed by James J. Anderson Construction Company, Inc.  The project is being financed with 100% City Capital Budget Funds. 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.
