QUESTION: Dear Bungalower, when will Alden be disappearing forever? I heard someone from the Main Street Program say it would be in August.
The answer, according to the City, is a little convoluted, as Alden Road isn’t really “disappearing,” but will actually be diverted, to take over neighboring Philadelphia.
The development plan for the Yard at Ivanhoe project calls to close Alden to traffic from Virginia up to South Lake Formosa. Alden Road will be realigned to connect with Philadelphia Avenue, just to the east, as shown in the graphic above.
