DRWC Working on Waterfront Trail and Green Space

Penn Street Trail – a section of the Central Delaware waterfront trail that will connect Spring Garden Street with SugarHouse Casino’s portion of the trail – is expected to open next spring.  Preliminary plans call for a 12-foot, two-directional bicycle portion, to be separated from vehicular traffic by rain gardens and other plantings.

The RBA Group, architects, engineers and planners with offices in Philadelphia and other cities,  is designing trail standards, outlining how the Delaware River Waterfront Trail should be built along its entire length. The Penn Street portion will bring those concepts to life, said DRWC President Tom Corcoran.  According to Corcoran,  “This will be the full monty of trails. It will be the Cadillac.”
