The other day, we were walking up 21st Street and noticed the darndest thing: The pit at 21st & Bainbridge, caused by the dramatic water main break back in July, has finally been (mostly) filled in! While the street hasn’t been repaved and there’s still some work to be done, we were able to walk across the intersection, like the opposite of Moses parting the Red Sea.
Yes folks, it shouldn’t be long now before this intersection is reopened and the traffic that’s snarled South Street for a couple of months will be mostly relieved. It’s great news for just about everybody, with the notable exception of a special few. Way to go, Philadelphia Water Department!
