PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — PennDOT officials have announced that a major resurfacing project on Roosevelt Boulevard is scheduled to begin next week.
A $5.8 million project to repair and resurface 12 miles of the inside lanes of U.S. 1 (Roosevelt Boulevard) in Philadelphia will begin Monday night as a result of the state’s new transportation plan, PennDOT officials said.
Crews will work through late October to remove the deteriorated pavement and repave the northbound and southbound inside lanes of the Boulevard between 9th Street and the Bucks County line.
PennDOT says the inside lanes will be closed weeknights from 7:30 p.m. to 6 a.m. in the direction where crews are working. Traffic will be diverted to the Boulevard’s outside travel lanes.
Starting next week, crews will work on the northbound inside lanes of the Boulevard between 9th Street and Adams Avenue Monday through Friday (August 11 to August 15) from 7:30 p.m. to 6 a.m. Drivers are advised to allow extra time for travel through the construction area because slowdowns will occur.
PennDOT says Tony DePaul and Son of Blue Bell, Montgomery County, is the general contractor on the $5,869,555 project. The resurfacing work is expected to finish by Oct. 31.
