Public Safety Advisory - Pedestrian and Traffic Advisory: Construction at 33rd and Market Streets

02/08/2019 11:00AM

PECO and PennDOT crews are scheduled to begin major repairs of utilities and sidewalks at the intersection of 33rd and Market streets on Monday, Feb. 11. In addition to the northeast (Nesbitt Hall) and southeast (Dragon Statue) corners of 33rd and Market streets, which continue to be inaccessible to pedestrians, larger portions of the sidewalk around Nesbitt Hall will be closed to pedestrians during this work. Both the Dragon (Center City) and Powelton-Spring Garden campus shuttle buses will pick up and drop off at 33rd and Ludlow streets, by the Papadakis Integrated Sciences Building (not outside of Nesbitt Hall).

The expanded sidewalk closure includes:

  • The east side of 33rd Street, from Lancaster Walk to the Market Street corner; and
  • The north side of Market Street, from the entrance to Nesbitt to the 33rd Street corner.

To avoid this area, pedestrians are advised to use the following alternatives:

  • Cross Market Street at the traffic light at 32nd and Market streets; or
  • Use the crosswalk at 33rd and Lancaster Walk and proceed to Market Street at the Recreation Center.

Construction on this intersection is expected to continue for the next few weeks. Pedestrians are advised to follow all posted signage and use caution when traveling through the area.

Please consult Drexel's Construction and Traffic Advisories webpage for more information about areas near campus that are under construction, and for pedestrian and driver safety tips.
