Traffic Advisory: 37th Street Closed
Starting on December 23, 37th Street between Walnut and Chestnut will be closed to vehicular traffic for two to three months. UPPD Sgt. Ted Farrell has made arrangements for deliveries to Pottruck Health and Fitness Center and the Inn at Penn, Penn Bookstore, and Pod. The UPPD will assist with those affected in Sansom Place West during move-in and move-out. Preliminary work will begin on replacing the water main, with excavation expected to start soon thereafter.
Partial street closures are anticipated as work progresses. When the street is closed from Chestnut to Sansom, access to the businesses will be from the 3600 block of Sansom.
PGW is waiting for parts to finish their work at 37th and Chestnut. This should have no impact on eastbound traffic on Chestnut Street but a delay may affect the work schedule of the 37th Street project. Hours of work are tentatively scheduled as 7 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday to Friday with minimal disruption of water service.
