Construction will begin the week of September 24 along MLK Drive between the Schuylkill River Bridge and Girard Avenue overpass.
Work on the project includes:
- replacing the light poles with new fiberglass light poles on new foundations
- new wiring
- LED roadway and trail lighting
- LED flood lighting of the falls.
Intermittent lane closures will occur during off-peak hours. Trail closure will occur from Sweet Briar Road to Paine’s Park. Signage will be posted to direct travelers around the work site.
Construction will last through January 2019.
The Streets Department is leading this project. Streets and Parks & Rec thank residents for their ongoing support of improvement projects and asks for their patience and cooperation during the upcoming construction phase.
