Schuylkill Crossing at Grays Ferry
The previous truss bridge and swing mechanism has been removed from the site. The contractor is now in the process of removing the existing fender system, which can be seen in the photo above. This work requires coordination with the Department of Environmental Protection to avoid impacting endangered species that live in this area of the river. The preparation of shop drawings for the new truss and fender system is currently underway. Project completion is expected in mid- 2020. Learn more about this project here.

Christian to Crescent Connector
A Public Open House was held September 26th at the Donald Finnegan Playground. The event had a good turnout and many neighbors provided feedback on the design and alignment of this trail segment, which was overwhelmingly positive. The most mentioned issue with the project was the anticipated completion of 2022 or 2023, which was viewed as a long way off. This project will soon be in final design, which will take one year to complete. Once design drawings are finalized, construction will begin. Learn more about this project here.
