Lincoln Drive, between Wissahickon Avenue and Ridge Avenue/Kelly Drive, will be closed temporarily on Saturday, January 9, Streets Commissioner Clarena I. W. Tolson announced. The following temporary full closure is scheduled to be in effect from approximately 7:00 AM to 5:00 PM on Saturday:

• Southbound Lincoln Drive traffic will be blocked at Wissahickon Drive. A marked detour will carry traffic to the end of Lincoln Drive at Ridge Avenue, by way of Walnut Lane.

• Northbound traffic will be blocked at all entrances to the south end of Lincoln Drive. No detour is provided for northbound traffic, due to the numerous entrances. Suggested detours are Walnut Lane or Schoolhouse Lane.

 

The temporary closure will allow City employees from a number of Departments to safely work along this winding stretch of road. Projects include but are not limited to guide rail repairs, inlet cleaning, pothole repairs, tree cutting/pruning, and other maintenance work to the roadway and adjacent facilities. This work has been scheduled for weekend hours in order to expedite repairs and minimize disruption to motorists. Police Department assistance will be on site to help maintain a safe traffic flow in the area.

 

All work will be completed and traffic will be restored by 5:00 PM. For the duration of the work, Streets Department crews will make every effort to minimize the inconvenience to affected drivers, residents, and businesses. The Streets Department thanks citizens in advance for their patience and cooperation during this project.
