By Jim Donovan: If you live, work, or plan to visit Center City Philadelphia in the upcoming weeks I wanted you to know about some scheduled road work that may disrupt traffic/parking.

The following streets in Center City are scheduled for street
improvement work starting Monday, August 20 and ending Friday, September 28, weather permitting.

To minimize disruption to traffic and area residents and businesses some of the work will be completed in the evening beginning at 7 PM.
Weather or special events in the area may alter the resurfacing schedule.

Residents are urged to move their cars from the work sites when temporary”No Parking” signs are posted so that vehicles are not towed. In the event a car is towed, please contact your local Police District to determine its location.
