Expect delays Saturday on Lincoln Drive.

The Philadelphia Streets Department sent out a release yesterday to inform the public that the southbound lanes of Lincoln Drive between Wissahickon Avenue and Kelly Drive will be closed all day on Saturday, June 23.

The closure, according to the release will begin at 7 a.m. and last until 5 p.m. If you’re planning on heading into the city at all tomorrow during the day, you’ll want to plan a different route. –Pete Mazzaccaro

More from the release:

Southbound Lincoln Drive traffic will be detoured at Wissahickon Avenue. Detour signs will be posted along Wissahickon Avenue, Walnut Lane, and Ridge Avenue to direct traffic to the end of the closure. Northbound traffic will not be affected.

The temporary closure will allow City employees to safely work along this winding stretch of road. This work is scheduled for daytime hours in order to expedite repairs, minimize disruption to motorists, and provide a safe work environment for the workers. Police Department assistance will be on site to help maintain a safe traffic flow in the area.

All work will be completed and the lane will be restored by 5 p.m.. For the duration of the work, Streets Department crews will make every effort to minimize the inconvenience to affected drivers, residents, and businesses. The Streets Department thanks citizens in advance for their patience and cooperation during this project.
