On Friday construction began on the 58th Street Greenway which will link Cobbs Creek Trail, the Schulykill River Trail, and Bartram's Garden. This connection will link three crucial city parks providing a critical link in the East Coast Greenway.
A connector bridge has been underway for months, bridging over the CSX tracks at Schuylkill Banks, with completion set for October. The Walnut Street bridge is also under construction, to create a safer bridge with wider sidewalks and a bike box.
Future projects are the Port Richmond Trail which will line Delaware and Allegheny avenues, creating a multi-use trail separating traffic by a planted median. The Boardwalk extension of Schuylkill banks will extend the trail southward from Locust Street to South Street.
