Plans are to repair and widen the narrow sidewalk trail to a 10' wide permeable asphalt path. A retaining wall will be built where the path meets up against a steep slope. The work will end at the intersection of Ridge Avenue and Kelly Drive. The upcoming Wissahickon Gateway project, will be looking at alternatives to carrying the trail over the Wissahickon Creek via the Ridge Avenue sidewalk.
A on-street detour plan is being drawn up that will use Calumet Street and Ridge Avenue. The details of this plan will be made available once it is finalized.
