One southbound lane will be closed in the area of Kellogg Street to facilitate a main tie in and the roadway will fully open up just past Society Hill, explained city spokeswoman Kimberly Wallace-Scalcione.
The roadway in its entirety will be fully reopened for the Monday morning traffic rush.
The emergency sewer line repairs took nearly three weeks after initial estimates had them taking about 14 days and also started slightly later than expected.
“We’re proud to report that the construction was a success and we’re thankful for drivers cooperation for keeping traffic to a minimum,” Wallace-Scalcione added.
While this caused a halt in visiting elderly family members, loss for some businesses, safety is very important and glad to the job get done.
