Kelly Drive Restricted This Week for Safety Improvements in Philadelphia

lane closures

PHILADELPHIA, PA — Kelly Drive motorists will encounter alternating lane closures in both directions between Ferry Drive and West Hunting Park Avenue, on Wednesday, October 27, through Friday, October 29, from 8:00 PM to 5:00 AM the following morning for raised pavement marking installation, announced the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT).

Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work area because backups and delays will occur. All scheduled activities are weather-dependent.

This work is part of a $4.7 million project to apply high friction surface treatment to various state highways across the Philadelphia Region to help reduce crashes on curves and intersections on wet pavement, while decreasing braking distance and hydroplaning.

J.D. Eckman, Inc., of Atglen, Chester County, is the general contractor in the project which is financed with 100 percent federal funds.

Motorists can check current road conditions by visiting the MyChesCo Traffic Center.
