Here’s look at the road closures and detours coming up in Northwest Philadelphia this weekend. 

Kelly Drive will be detoured from the Strawberry Mansion Bridge to Fountain Green Drive on Saturday, June 14 from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. for the Schuylkill Navy Regatta.

The detours, as detailed by Philadelphia Polia, are as follows: 

Southbound Kelly Drive traffic will be detoured up the Strawberry Mansion ramp to Fountain Green Drive via Reservoir Drive. Northbound Kelly Drive traffic will be detoured up Fountain Green Drive, along the same route.

Detour signs will be posted along the detour routes and delays are expect to be minimal.

On Sunday, June 15, the Gary Papa Run for Your Life Run will take place on MLK Drive. It will form on the Art Museum steps at 7 a.m. The route will proceed from the steps to the Martin Luther King Drive, north on MLK Drive to just north of the Sweet Briar Cutoff, then turn around and proceed back to the Art Museum.

Due to the number of participants involved the following streets will be closed, according to police.

Eakins Oval: Westbound to Spring Garden Street Bridge and into the city from Southbound Kelly Drive; Spring Garden Street: Westbound only; Kelly Drive: Southbound only; and from Fairmount Avenue to Eakins Oval

The street closures will be in effect from 6:30 a.m. until approximately 1 p.m.
