A roadway speed bump caused a sudden jolt in Somerton when it popped up unexpectedly near the neighborhood’s SEPTA train station last month. But Streets Department Commissioner David Perri smoothed things over last week, announcing the removal of the bump.
Community members and city officials came together last Wednesday afternoon at a groundbreaking ceremony to commence construction of the first phase of the Delaware Avenue Extension Project, which will extend the existing Delaware Avenue to Bridge Street.
The project aims to relieve traffic congestion and provide better access to the Delaware River.
Dozens of residents came out to learn about developments in their neighborhood.
