Current Projects


The trail at Locust Street cannot be extended southward on land, because the land between the railroad tracks and the river becomes too narrow. The City of Philadelphia and SRDC are building a 2,000 foot long concrete structure running parallel to the eastern shore of the river from Locust Street to the new stairtower on the south side of the South Street Bridge. A 460’ long ramp will be built on the north side of the new South Street Bridge and will link to the boardwalk, providing ADA access and an easier connection for people with bicycles.
