One Lane of Shawmont Avenue Closed Until Aug. 9
The Philadelphia Water Department is doing work in the area.
The eastbound lane of Shawmont Avenue, between Eva and Minerva Streets, will be closed from 7 a.m. from 7 p.m. until Aug. 9 to allow the Philadelphia Water Department to work on a water main in the area.
The westbound lane will be able to pass at a reduced speed and traffic will then be diverted into the eastbound lane in the vicinity of the work, a release from the water department stated.
The traffic will be detoured up Domino Lane, then left onto Ridge Avenue and drivers are asked to reduce speed at Shawmont Avenue and Eva Streets as it will be a one-lane road and a left turn only sign is at Shawmont Avenue and Green Tree Run.
