Summer Construction Continues Throughout the Neighborhood
Some roads are closed. Parking is prohibited on others.
Construction has made it a little harder to travel through parts of Mt. Airy lately.
Portions of West Allens Lane have been closed to cars for a good portion of the past three weeks. Allens Lane is closed today just east of Cresheim Road as Philadelphia Gas Works continues its regular maintenance of gas lines along the road.
Work ends each day at 4 p.m., according to PGW spokeswoman Melanie McCottry.
"Basically, what that is is safety prevention to make sure everything under the ground is in good condition," McCottry said.
Streetscape work is also being done along Germantown Avenue today. Parking is prohibited on a portion of the road south of Sedgwick Street.
The streetscape work is part of a larger, Mt. Airy USA project along the avenue and has continued throughout the summer.
A portion of the eastbound side of Carpenter Lane just east of Lincoln Drive was also closed earlier today for work, but cars were permitted to pass going both directions.
