The Port Richmond Trail is a two (2) mile stretch of sidepath
trail which will ultimately be a part of the Delaware River Trail and the East Coast Greenway. The trail begins at Allegheny Ave. and Richmond St. and follows Allegheny Avenue as it becomes N. Delaware Ave. At Lewis Street, the sidepath will continue north with the widening of Delaware Avenue to Orthodox St., a Streets Department project. The Port Richmond trail will provide safe connections from the Monkiewicz Playground to Pulaski Park and possibly to the future Frankford Creek Greenway.
The project is fully designed and funded through the Federally-funded Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER) program. Philadelphia Parks & Recreation has worked closely with the Delaware River City Corporation to see this project to fruition.
The project has been bid and awarded and is set to go into construction late Fall 2012.
