    A major resurfacing project is set to begin on the Roosevelt Boulevard.

    PennDOT announced that a $5.8 million project to repair and resurface 12 miles of the inside lanes of U.S. 1 in Philly will start on August 11. It’s the latest project funded by the state’s new transportation plan.

    Crews will work until late October to remove deteriorated pavement and repave the northbound and southbound inside lanes of the Boulevard between 9th Street and the Bucks County line.

    The inside lanes will be closed weeknights from 7:30 p.m. to 6 a.m. in the direction where crews are working during the project. Traffic will be diverted to the Boulevard’s outside travel lanes.

    Crews will first begin work on the inside northbound lanes of the Boulevard between 9th Street and Adams Avenue. Construction on that stretch of road will take place from August 11 to August 15 from 7:30 p.m. to 6 a.m. Drivers are advised to allow extra time for travel through the construction area.

    Tony DePaul and Son of Blue Bell, Montgomery County is the general contractor of the $5,869,555 project. Work is expected to be completed by October 31.
