Traffic Delays: Kelly Drive Restricted in Philadelphia

traffic alert expect delays

PHILADELPHIA, PA — Kelly Drive motorists will encounter alternating lane closures in both directions between Ferry Drive and West Hunting Park Avenue, on Wednesday, July 21, and Thursday, July 22, from 8:00 PM to 5:00 AM the following morning for milling and paving operations, reports 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.
