Temporary, Full Street Closures and Parking Restrictions Expected

NOTE: This press release has been corrected to reflect the updated start date of June 27, 2024

PHILADELPHIA – Department of Streets Commissioner Kristin Del Rossi announced today that temporary street closures and parking restrictions to accommodate street resurfacing of Byberry Road between Philmont Avenue and Roosevelt Boulevard (7th Police District) will begin on June 27, 2024. This resurfacing operation is expected to be completed by the end of July 2024.

Work will be completed in three separate phases: street milling, the adjustment of manhole covers and resetting of utility boxes, and final paving. Work for milling the old asphalt is anticipated to occur during the night shift and take approximately five (5) nights to complete. Work for adjusting manhole covers and resetting utility boxes will take place during the day shift and is anticipated to last two (2) to three (3) days. Lastly, operations for the final paving are anticipated to occur during the night shift and take approximately five (5) nights, weather dependent.

The paving and milling operations will take place in the overnight hours from 7 p.m. to 5 p.m. Resetting utility boxes and manhole adjustments will take place during daytime hours from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. The roadways will remain open with temporary flagging to direct traffic during daytime operations.

To minimize adverse impact to the surrounding community, this resurfacing work is being coordinated with PennDOT to be performed concurrently with repairs of the Byberry Road Bridge over CSX. During overnight milling and resurfacing operations, the established PennDOT detour will be extended along Southampton Road to Trevose Road and Bustleton Avenue. When resurfacing operations are completed, the PennDOT detour will be returned to its original configuration, sending traffic down Worthington Road to Byberry Road.

To complete the work, residents should expect some 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 the local Police District to determine its location. Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling around the work areas.

While the Department of Streets will make every effort to minimize disruption to traffic, residents are urged to plan ahead and use alternative routes when traveling in these areas. The Streets Department thanks residents in advance for their patience and cooperation as we work to improve City streets.

This work is being completed by James J. Anderson Construction Co., Inc. and is part of the Citywide Resurfacing CW110 Project. The project is being financed with Federal and City funding, and the value of the contract is approximately $36.3 Million.
