Southbound Broad Street (Route 611) Restricted in Philadelphia

traffic alert expect delays

PHILADELPHIA, PA — Southbound Broad Street (Route 611) will be reduced to a single lane between Spring Garden Street and Vine Street in Philadelphia, on Monday, November 22, through Wednesday, November 24, from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM for waterline installation under a project to replace the five-span bridge that carries four lanes of traffic over loading docks and former railroad lines, announced the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT).

Drivers are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work area because backups and delays will occur. The schedule is weather dependent and subject to change.

The scope of work on this project includes replacement of the bridge superstructure and three steel piers. PennDOT’s contractor will rehabilitate the remaining two stone piers and abutments to support the new bridge superstructure.
