The Streets Department is beginning a much-needed repaving project to fix up some of the roads throughout the city.
The project will start with streets in Center City and some stretches of South Philly.
In South Philly, the streets that will be affected by the repaving this week are 15th Street from South Street to Washington Avenue, 16th Street from Walnut Street to Washington Avenue, Kater Street from 17th Street to Broad Street.
More from PlanPhilly:
Most of the work will occur at night. The streets will be milled, meaning the top layers of asphalt will be stripped off, starting at 7 p.m. As this Streetsplainer explicates, there is usually a gap between milling and repaving. After milling, manholes will need to be inspected before the roads can be repaved with new asphalt and then repainted with new traffic lines.
