PHILADELPHIA – Department of Streets Commissioner Kristin Del Rossi announced today that temporary street closures and parking restrictions to accommodate street resurfacing will begin the week of July 8, 2024. The resurfacing work for these streets is expected to be completed by the end of August 2024.

The contractor is anticipating performing resurfacing operations through Philadelphia on the following streets:

  • B ST, from E Nedro Ave to E Champlost  Ave.
  • E CHAMPLOST AVE, from B St to Hammond Ave.
  • CLARIDGE ST, from E Pike St to E Lycoming St.
  • D ST, from E Allegheny Ave to E Westmoreland St.
  • HURLEY ST, from E Allegheny Ave to E Westmoreland St.
  • CLOUD ST, from Plum St to Meadow St.
  • DITMAN ST, from Kinsey St to Meadow St.
  • PLUM ST, from Ditman St to Mulberry St.
  • GILLINGHAM ST, from Mulberry St to Tackawanna St.
  • ORTHODOX ST, from Mulberry St to Ditman St.
  • PEAR ST, from Mulberry St to Tackawanna St.
  • 69TH AVE, from N Broad St to Verbena Ave.

The contractor has confirmed that daytime resurfacing operations will occur in the 5th Highway Bid# 3935_G2021-010281.

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 day shift and take approximately five (5) days 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 day and take approximately three (3) to five (5) day per corridor, weather dependent.

All work 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.

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 Streets Department 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.

This street milling and manhole reset will be completed by J.J. Anderson and paving will be completed by city forces.
