The Schuylkill Project, a partnership between East Falls and Manayunk is leading design and engineering consultants in improving the trail and road connections. To see the PowerPoint presentation, click here.
You probably recognize the intersection of Main St and Ridge Avenue in the sketch below in front of Duron Paint. The sidewalk and front parking area would be modified to allow for the inclusion of a trail.
More importantly the issue of crossing over Wissahickon Creeek would also be addressed, there are two options:
- Cantelever a pathway on the south side of the Ridge Ave over the Wissahickon Bridge
- Build a new pedestrian bridge over the creek, there are abutments 100 feet south of Ridge Avenue which would save costs.
