Last week an RFP went out seeking a designer for the Spring Garden Connector project improvements. The project goal is to make walking or biking from Northern Liberties to the waterfront a more pleasant experience. Link for RFP The connector project is part of two larger projects, the redevelopment of the Festival pier and the Spring Garden Greenway project.
The RFP will remain open for bids for four weeks, after which candidates will be interviewed. The work will stretch from Delaware Avenue/ Columbus Boulevard to 2nd Street, with much of the project focused on the area beneath the huge I-95 overpass. The design will have to take into consideration that the overpass is going to be redone in about five years as part of the Revive 95 project. DRWC is hopeful that many of the elements can be stored for inspection, and then put back once the highway work is completed.
