Westbank Greenway Construction Update

Construction has begun on the Westbank Greenway. Construction crews have cleared away brush and the old sidewalk and have begun to install granite curbing on 31st St from Powellton to 34th St.

It appears that the sidepath will be the first phase of the project and could be done within a few months, two other major portions of the project will probably take longer. They will be replacing the temporary bridge walls with transparent plexiglass (for river views) and installing a accessible ramp from the Spring Garden St Bridge down to MLK Drive and the Schuylkill River Trail.
