  • Meadowlark Place, from South 73rd Street to Dead End West
  • Kinglet Place, from South 73rd Street to Dead End West
  • Bunting Place, from South 73rd Street to Dead End West

  • Steler Street, from West Passyunk Ave to Teodore Street
  • West Passyunk Avenue, from South 72nd to Island Ave
  • Teodore Street, from South 71st Street to Lloyd Street

The contractor has confirmed that resurfacing operations will be occur in the 1st and 2nd Highway District.

Work will be completed in three separate phases: street milling, the adjustment of manhole covers and resetting of utility boxes, and final paving. These activities will take place in separate construction phases spanning over the course of the next several months. Work for milling the old asphalt is anticipated to occur during the night shift and take approximately five (5) nights per corridor. 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 per corridor. Lastly, operations for the final paving are anticipated to occur during the night shift and take approximately three (3) to five (5) nights per corridor, weather dependent.

The paving and milling operations will take place during daytime hours from 7 a.m. to 4 a.m. The roadways will remain open with temporary flagging to direct traffic.

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 Department of Streets thanks residents in advance for their patience and cooperation as we work to improve City streets.

These street milling projects will be completed by TonyDePaul and paving will be completed by city forces.
