Replacement of the Holme Avenue Bridge has created havoc.

This summer we wrote about the Holme Avenue Bridge, the reconstruction of which had been wreaking havoc on Holme Circle neighbors. Residents complained of poorly marked detours and overwhelming traffic, saying that PennDOT hadn't done enough to ease the burden of the construction. But peace is soon to return, the Northeast news site NEastPhilly reports today. Construction of the bridge is two months ahead of schedule and is slated to be finished by the end of October, says Harold Windisch, assistant construction engineer on site, at the Holme Circle Civic Association meeting last night. HCCA has even created a beautification committee to usher in the reopened bridge, NeastPhilly writes:

HCCA President Joe Razler explained the association has also formed a committee to beautify the circle in conjunction with the end of construction. Those lanes will be repainted and the HCCA wants to install neighborhood signs similar to the one at the Winchester Park entrance.

Help Desk is happy the neighbors of Holme Circle can get back to their normal routines.
