Second Community Workshop: Improving Bicycle and Pedestrian Access to the John Heinz National Wildlife Refuge at Tinicum

As a follow-up to the community workshop held in late March, consultants Campbell Thomas & Company have further developed several alternatives to improve bicycle and pedestrian access to the Heinz Refuge.

WHEN: Monday, July 30, 2007

6:00-8:00 pm (open house format)

WHERE: Cusano Environmental Education Center
John Heinz National Wildlife Refuge at Tinicum
86th Street & Lindbergh Blvd.

The three alternatives being examined are:

  • Creating an off-road, bicycle and pedestrian connection between SEPTA’s Eastwick R1 Regional Rail station and the Refuge’s Visitor’s Center (Cusano Center at 86th St. and Lindbergh Blvd.).
  • Improving conditions for bicyclists and pedestrians on Route 420, both north and south of the Delaware County entrance to the Refuge.
  • Opening up the abandoned trolley right-of-way that passes underneath both I-95 and Route 291 to bicyclists and pedestrians as a new entrance to the Refuge.

Come to view and discuss these alternatives.

This workshop will be held in an open house format. Please feel free to come for the entire time or stop by when you can. Refreshments provided!
