Tell the Pennsylvania Turpike to build a new bicycle pedestrian crossing over the Delaware River

The Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission is taking public comments on the proposed second span of the PA-NJ Turnpike Bridge. Currently in the Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) there is no mention of a bike ped crossing.

Tell the PA Turnpike Commission that a bicycle/pedestrian crossing is a cost effective mitigation of the environmental impact of the turnpike bridge. And that you as a tax and toll paying citizen demand that the Turnpike Bridge serve all modes of transportation.

The public should mail any comments about the FEIS to the following address before the August 15 deadline. Comments must include name, address, and signature.

Jeffrey Davis, Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission
PA Turnpike/I-95 Interchange Project Office
3220 Tillman Drive, Suite 104
Bensalem, PA 19020-2028

Thanks - taking 10 minutes to write a short letter can go a long way to providing a new bicycle crossing of the Delaware River.
