Don't Plan on Using Philadelphia's Lincoln Drive This Weekend Or Any Other Weekend This Month

The latest phase of the Lincoln Drive Restoration Project is happening on summer weekends

Your weekend travels through Philadelphia just got a lot more difficult thanks to the next phase of a construction project along Lincoln Drive.

Beginning Friday at 9 p.m., the busy Philadelphia roadway will close for the weekend for drainage improvements, and to install a new storm sewer.

The road will re-open no later than Monday at 6 a.m. This weekend schedule will repeat for the remaining three weekends in July, Philadelphia Streets Commissioner Carlton Williams said.

During the window of construction, motorists will be detoured between Ridge and Wissahickon avenues. Expect delays during busy hours of travel when using alternate routes like Walnut Lane and Henry Avenue.

This announcement comes as the newest phase of the Lincoln Drive Restoration Project. As of now, the City expects the project to continue through December 2019.
