Port Richmond Trail to go to Construction
The design is complete and the project was bid on July 12. The contract preparation work is now taking place, the City expects to award the contract in September and, if all goes well, construction will start in October.
The project extends along Allegheny Avenue from Monkiewicz Playground, at Richmond Street, to Pulaski Park, at Delaware Avenue, and along Delaware Avenue from Allegheny Avenue to Lewis Street. The work will include widening the sidewalk area of both Allegheny Avenue and Delaware Avenue to allow for the construction of a 1.5 mile long, 12′-wide asphalt trail. There will also be a significant amount of greening that will take place. The work should be completed by this time next year.
