Map of street affected in project 41132 Cresheim Valley Drive


PWD project #41132 Cresheim Valley Improvement Project will install a new interceptor sewer along Cresheim Valley Drive. The work will help to protect local waterways and improve infrastructure in the area, and is expected to last for approximately 6 months.

Traffic advisory: Full road closure will be required for the duration of construction. A detour plan will be implemented and maintained throughout the project.

Construction will take place on Cresheim Valley Drive from Navajo St. to Cresheim Rd, and Germantown Ave. to W Allens Lane will be closed to through traffic. Residents living on Cresheim Road can use Emlen St to access W Allens Lane, and trash will be picked up for these residents.

We do not anticipate any direct impact to the nearby recreational trails, however hikers are encouraged to exercise caution in proximity to the work area.

If you have any questions, please contact John.DiGiulio@phila.gov.

Cresheim Valley Drive open to traffic again

Cresheim Valley Drive between Germantown Avenue and West Allens Lane is open to traffic again following a six-month project to construct a new sanitary sewer.

The project began in early November 2021 and was completed on schedule, with the road reopening on April 18, 2022. Temporary closures may occur in the coming months as work to install safety barriers.

Protecting local waterways and improving the health of our rivers and streams is central to the Philadelphia Water Department’s mission.
