Line Striping Planned Next Week on Girard Avenue (U.S. 30) Near Philadelphia Zoo


King of Prussia, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today that line striping operations are scheduled next week on Girard Avenue (U.S. 30) near the Philadelphia Zoo under the project to replace the structure that carries four lanes of traffic and the SEPTA Route 15 trolley over CSX railroad tracks in the Parkside neighborhood of Philadelphia. Major construction on the project was completed in December 2022.

Motorists are advised of the following travel restriction:

Drivers are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work area because significant backups and delays are expected. All scheduled activities are weather dependent.

The scope of work on this project included replacement of the bridge superstructure, rehabilitation of the stone support abutments and construction of a dedicated right turn lane on the eastbound Interstate 76 (Schuylkill Expressway) ramp to Girard Avenue (U.S. 30). The SEPTA trolley tracks were also replaced across the bridge.

Neshaminy Constructors Inc. is the general contractor on the $4.3 million project, which is financed with 80% federal and 20% state funds.

Motorists can check conditions on more than 40,000 roadway miles, including color-coded winter conditions on 2,900 miles, by visiting 511PA, which is free and available 24 hours a day, provides traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts, traffic speed information and access to more than 1,000 traffic cameras.
