PHILADELPHIA, PA — Lane closures are scheduled on Race Street and 16th Street in Philadelphia, from 7:00 AM to 4:00 PM and 7:00 PM to 5:00 AM, for casting adjustments, and milling, paving, and line striping operations, as part of several projects to repair and resurface more than 200 miles of state highway across the five-county Philadelphia region, states the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT).

The work schedules and locations are:

  • Wednesday, July 21, through Friday, July 23, a lane closure is scheduled on Race Street between 6th Street and 8th Street; and
  • Wednesday, July 21, through Friday, July 30, a weekday lane closure is scheduled on 16th Street between John F. Kennedy Boulevard (Route 3) and Vine Street.

Under these improvement projects, PennDOT is milling the existing roadway surface and repaving the state highways with new asphalt. The new pavement will seal the roadways and provide motorists with a smoother riding surface.
