Beware of Icing on the Schuylkill River Trail
A steady flow of water has created severe icing problems on the Schuylkill River Trail.
The problem area is an on road section of the trail in the Shawmont neighborhood at the corner of Nixon St and Port Royal Avenue. The area that is affected is a short but steep upgrade and one cyclist has already suffered a broken hip from this hazard.
If you see a hazard on a Philadelphia Street (such as the one above) contact the Streets Department Pothole Website. If you spot a hazardous condition on an off road section of the trail contact the Fairmount Park Commission if its in Philadelphia or the Lower Perkiomen Park Manager William Markely for the trail in Montgomery County.
