Paving

Street paving keeps Philadelphia roadways safe and smooth. The Department of Streets shares updates on paving operations so people traveling around the city can plan appropriately.

Timing

The paving season begins in early spring and ends in late fall each year.

Paving work takes between three to five weeks.


Process

The annual Streets Paving Program and List details the paving process and lists streets that the department will pave that year.

You can also use the PavePHL section of StreetSmartPHL to view a map of paving operations and learn more about paving steps.

  • Posting temporary No Parking signs with dates and times that owners must move their vehicles, 48 hours before work begins.
  • Scheduling automated phone calls for residents.
  • Sending text messages and emails to residents who sign up for alerts.
  • Posting announcements on Nextdoor and the @PhilaStreets accounts on Facebook and Twitter.
