Grays Ferry Avenue Lane Closures at Night June 23 & 24 in SW Philadelphia

Periodic eastbound or westbound lane closures will be in place on Grays Ferry Avenue between 34th and 47th on Wednesday, June 23, and Thursday, June 24, from 9:00 PM to 5:00 AM the following morning for placement of pavement markings in Southwest Philadelphia, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation announced today.

Crews will be placing the final pavement markings as part of the $13.3 million project that got underway in late 2018 to rehabilitate the Grays Ferry Avenue Bridge over the Schuylkill River and complete a number of improvements to Grays Ferry Avenue on both sides of the bridge.

All scheduled activities are weather-dependent. 

Buckley and Company of Philadelphia is the General Contractor on the project that is expected to be completed late this year.

Work on this project will be in accordance with Centers for Disease Control and state Department of Health guidance as well as a project-specific COVID-19 safety plan, which will include protocols for social distancing, use of face coverings, personal and job-site cleaning protocols, management of entries to the jobsite, special signage and relevant training.
