Free Schuylkill River Park

Have your group sign a petition to allow a grade crossings at Locust and Race St. CSX plans to permanently fence off those two access points leaving the only access at the Market, Chestnut and Walnut St bridges away from the adjacent neighborhoods.

To its credit the city continues to oppose CSX plans. The Streets department is willing to put up signalized gates at both entrances but CSX will not budge. Many believe that CSX has gone as far as parking trains in front of the access points.
