Germantown Avenue from Bethlehem Pike and Cresheim Valley Drive will be closed temporarily for snow removal work on Wednesday, February 19, Streets Commissioner David Perri announced today. The following temporary, full closure is scheduled to be in effect from approximately 10:00 PM Wednesday evening to 6:00 AM Thursday morning.

We are asking that all cars be removed from Germantown Avenue so as not to hamper the snow removal operation.

SEPTA will suspend bus service during this time period. The Streets Department apologizes in advance for any inconvenience that this may cause and thanks residents and businesses for their patience and cooperation. Police Department assistance will be on call to help maintain a safe traffic flow in the area.

All work will be completed and traffic will be restored by 6:00 AM Thursday, February 20. The Streets Department thanks citizens in advance for their patience and cooperation during this project.

    Maybe they can turn down Rex Avenue or some of the other CH streets when they’re done and drop a little salt…the street has been snow covered for weeks with next to no city attention, and there are now several inches of matted-down ice that will take a long time to fully melt. I understand this isn’t unique and other neighborhoods are in the same boat, but we haven’t seen any help at all. Embarrassing considering the taxes we pay.
