PECO to Close Westbound Oregon Avenue Near I-95 in South Philadelphia

Travel Restrictions

PHILADELPHIA, PA — PECO Energy is planning to close westbound Oregon Avenue between Swanson Street and Front Street in Philadelphia beginning at 6:00 AM Wednesday, July 6, for utility construction, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced. The westbound closure will be in place 24/7 through Wednesday, July 20.

During the closure, westbound Oregon Avenue motorists will be directed to use Christopher Columbus Boulevard, Pattison Avenue, and Front Street.

Due to the location of the work zone, large trucks will be prohibited from turning right from northbound Front Street onto eastbound Oregon Avenue. The truck detour will direct drivers to use Front Street, Pattison Avenue, and Christopher Columbus Boulevard. Local access will be maintained up to the work zone.

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

PECO Energy will complete this project under a PennDOT Highway Occupancy Permit.
