The Chinatown Stitch: Reconnecting Philadelphia to Vine Street

A Complete Streets project


The Chinatown Stitch: Reconnecting Philadelphia to Vine Street is a project that will explore capping a portion of the Vine Street Expressway. A cap is a bridge or structure built over a highway that allows for uses such as parks, open space, or commercial and residential buildings.

Specifically, this project focuses on the area between Broad Street to 8th Street and Callowhill Street to Race Street.

The Office of Transportation, Infrastructure, and Sustainability and the Philadelphia Chinatown Development Corporation have begun a study to gather input from the Chinatown community and the public. This feedback will help the team:

  • Create guiding principles for the project.
  • Identify potential capping locations.
  • Determine the preferred cap uses.

Take the public survey

Using what we learned from the first round of public engagement, our team has developed three concepts for the Chinatown Stitch cap. Now, we want to hear your thoughts on the designs.

The team will use the survey results to help choose a concept to develop further. Thank you for your input!
