Traffic Report: Henry Ave Project

New surfacing and new striping is part of City’s Maintenance Unit Project.  This is separate from PennDOT’s Design Unit’s Project SR4001, the section of Henry Ave from Wissahickon Bridge west to Hermit St borders our neighborhood. We are now moved to Section SIP of this project which means we will be at the front in installing new safety measures on this section. This will include curb bump outs, median deflections, plantings in median, and new sidewalks. The design MAY also include reconfiguration of current striping. Funding for a synchronized traffic light at Henry Ave and Barnes St is being pursued by PennDOT.
