Connector Bridge Dedication This Saturday at 1 PM

Over the rails and through the park, to the Schuylkill
River Trail we go...
Don't miss the Connector Bridge dedication ceremony that is scheduled for 1:00 pm on Saturday, October 20th (rain or shine).  The bridge promises to be a fantastic new access point to the Schuylkill River Trail and is the culmination of an eight year campaign to ensure at-grade and above-grade access to the Trail and Schuylkill Banks.  No more waiting for the train to pass at Locust Street!

The 1:00 pm ceremony will be on the City side of the Bridge, at Schuylkill River Park (25th and Spruce Streets).  Come early for the Fall Festival that starts at 11:00 am.  If you want to be among the first to use the Bridge, come run (or volunteer) at the 8:00 am 5K Runnin on the River that is happening that morning. You can register online!
