The Manayunk Bridge trail is one of the most eagerly-anticipated trail amenities coming soon to our region. Construction began this week, and it should be finished in late 2015 or early 2016. The Connecting the Circuit website can show you the bridge in the context of the larger Circuit trail system: connecting the Cynwyd Heritage Trail in Bala Cynwyd to the Ivy Ridge Trail in Manayunk.
Today Hidden City Philadelphia published a really excellent story about the bridge. The story features information on the bridge’s history and great historic photos of its construction. Read it, geek out over the history and the photos, and get excited.
