On November 8, the Philadelphia Water Department (PWD) will begin a large construction project to install new sewers along the portion of Cresheim Valley Drive between Navajo Street and Cresheim Road. PWD has stated that the work will require the complete closure of that portion of the drive, and it is anticipated to remain closed for six months.
Cresheim Valley Drive turns into Emlen Street, so the closure is technically from Cresheim Valley Drive and Navajo Street to Emlen and Cresheim Road.
The closure will be from Allens Lane and Emlen Street to Germantown Avenue and Cresheim Valley Drive.
Traffic coming into Chestnut Hill from the west side of Mt. Airy will be directed to instead take Allens Lane to Germantown Avenue. The McCallum Street Bridge (to the south) and Stenton Avenue (to the north) will also continue to offer access between Chestnut Hill and Mt. Airy.
Local traffic will be allowed for residents, sanitation mail delivery. There no residences in the construction zone.
