DRPA CEO John Matheussen comments on bridge bicycle access.
Inquirer Reporter Paul Nussbaum posted an article on Philly.com in which he interviewed
DRPA CEO John Matheussen, asking about the replacing the stairs on the Camden side with an ADA accessible ramp. Matheussen's reply was something that the BCGP has waited a long time to hear - "The ramp will be built in 2012"
That's great news, although DRPA is an active partner with the TIGER projects in Camden (performing the lions share of the engineering work) the construction of the ramp has been the critical missing link and we applaud DRPA's plan to accelerate the ramp project.
Update - In Today's Courier Post Mr. Matheussen stated that he will be asking the DRPA Board to advance $100,000 in the project for design work in 2011, which will enable the 2012 construction projection.
