Conshohocken Fire Affects Schuylkill River Trail

The SRT in Conshohocken was affected by the huge fire that destroyed 3 of the 6 buildings in the Riverwalk complex.

The path was used for firefighter access and was a staging area for evacuees. And helicopter shots seen on the news looked like there was debris on the path.

There is no word on the status of the path but it's likely that bike traffic may be detoured off the path onto Elm St.

Saw/smelled the smoke from this when I was coming down Joshua Road last night. Wondered what happened, but kept going on the path towards Manayunk. thanks.

Thanks for letting us know. That is a real bummer. I hope everything is fine by this weekend.
