Motorcycle Mayhem

We have been involved in a full court press to deal with this dangerous situation. SHCA has repeatedly asked the City to return Spruce Street to allowing only one way traffic eastbound between Front and Columbus Blvd. as was the case before 2016.  Over 40 emails from SH residents supporting the request were sent to Councilman Squilla and Michael Carroll, Deputy Managing Director for Philadelphia’s Office of Transportation and Infrastructure. 

We have been in constant contact with police who are blocking traffic from entering South Street and monitoring the effect on surrounding streets.  See emails below.  We participated in a meeting of presidents of all civic organizations and the director of the South Street Headhouse District to discuss how to deal with South Street traffic. 

We will be asking area civic organizations to join us to make a coordinated effort to provide relief from the situation that could include installation of  speed cushions or other traffic calming measures..

This is just a brief summary and a few examples of how we have been making continuing efforts to address this problem.  To see some of these communications CLICK HERE. YOUR EMAILS CALLING ATTENTION TO THIS PROBLEM ARE IMPORTANT SUPPORT
