Jim Kenney, Larry Kane & a Great Evening at the Plays & Players

Our Wednesday event, with Larry Kane interviewing Jim Kenney was a terrific success.  If you couldn't make it, you can read about it - and see pictures - here on our website or here at the Inquirer.  It was truly an informal and intimate evening.  A big thank you to the Mayor and the Larry Kane for having such a tremendous interview for us.  And a tip of the hat to Harvey Sacks, VP Gov. Rel., and the Gov. Rel. committee for their hard work, attention to detail and smarts in putting this together.  
Street Closures Due to Movie Production

Lane Closure on the South Street Bridge thru 2/28

CHOP has secured a permit from the Philadelphia Street Dept. for a temporary lane closure on the South Street Bridge that will allow them to load materials on the South Street Plaza. The intermittent closures will take place starting today, through 2/28 on an as-needed basis. Any deliveries will be limited to the hours between 10:00am - 2:00pm to avoid impacting rush hour traffic. Pedestrian traffic will be maintained but detoured to the opposite side of the street at controlled intersections.
