Goals for 2019

There are plans to adapt the old railway bridge over Main Street near Riverworks to be a pedestrian overpass integrated into the Schuylkill River Trail. 

In 2019 we would like to find ways to support these plans.

There are plans to repair another bridge in the future which would mean that residents could walk to the Giant Supermarket without crossing any roads. 

In 2019 we would like to find ways to support these plans.

The Borough is planning to install pedestrian crossings with greater lighting on them to make drivers more aware of people crossing the road. 

This should be complete in 2019. We would monitor these changes and see if other changes to crossings can be implemented.

We are interested in the long term think about where in Phoenixville it might also be possible to add pedestrian subways like this one in a nearby township

In 2019 we could look at where anything like this could be remotely possible.
