Washington Avenue Transportation & Parking Study

The Washington Avenue Transportation & Parking Study was funded by the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission Transportation and Community Development Initiative (TCDI).

The goals of the study were to 1) inventory existing transportation, parking, and loading conditions, 2) propose alternatives to better organize movement within the cartway for pedestrians, cyclists, and vehicles, and 3) produce plans to enable the Streets Department to move ahead with restriping of the Avenue in next 1-2 years.
The first public meeting for the study was held at the Mummer's Museum on October 23rd, 2013. The presentation from that meeting is linked here.
The second public meeting for the study was held at the Grace & Peace Church on March 11, 2014. The presentation from that meeting is linked here.

The result of the study is a set of conceptual restriping plans and traffic retiming schema that maintains the vehicular traffic flow while increasing the safety and infrastructure for bicycle and pedestrian traffic.

Planning Commission staff will work with the Streets Department to move these conceptual plans into final restriping plans that maintain the operation of the businesses and residents along the Avenue. Staff will also work with implementing agencies to strategize enforcement of the new travel lane and parking and loading configurations.
