Several cars get flat tires from sewer lids on Lincoln Drive

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- Several cars suffered flat tires late Thursday night after hitting raised sewer lids due to an ongoing construction project along Lincoln Drive in Philadelphia.

It happened near Wissahickon Drive and Rittenhouse Street.

The pavement has been milled and awaits repaving. But in the meantime, the sewer lids are well above grade level and pose a real hazard.

The road was closed while crews worked to repair that stretch of Lincoln Drive.

Lincoln Drive will be closed all weekend, as well.

The construction project, meanwhile, will last until late next year.
