Sunday detours along Kelly Drive begin this weekend

Excluding Easter Sunday on April 22, drivers traveling along Kelly Drive will be detoured on consecutive Sundays from March 18 through May 6 for the Philadelphia Rowing Association Regattas (Manny Flicks).

The events are part of a series of 1,500-meter races on the Schuylkill River for local high school crew teams.

The detours are scheduled to take place between the hours of 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. on Sundays. 

Traffic will be detoured up the Strawberry Mansion ramp to Fountain Green Drive via Reservoir Drive for both northbound and southbound drivers.
