Roosevelt Blvd.

The City of Philadelphia, in partnership with SEPTA and PennDOT, are working on a three-year planning effort they’re calling the Roosevelt Boulevard “Route for Change” Program. To kick off this program, we need your input to inform a series of improvements that will create a Boulevard that is safer, more accessible, and more reliable for all users.

The “Route for Change” Program is funded by a US DOT TIGER grant, and financially matched by PennDOT, the City of Philadelphia, and SEPTA.

Please attend one of these public forums to talk about the future of the Roosevelt Boulevard. Light refreshments will be available at each forum. This is a great chance to talk about Vision Zero efforts on the Boulevard (where about 10 percent of all Philly traffic deaths occur each year.) Here are the meeting dates:

Saturday, April 16. 1:00 – 3:00PM at Globe Dye Works, 4500 Worth Street, Philadelphia, PA. Served by SEPTA bus routes 25, 56, and J. In-person Spanish & Chinese interpretation will be available at the meeting.

Tuesday, April 19. 6:00 – 8:00PM at Lenfest Center, 3890 N. 10th Street, Philadelphia, PA. Served by SEPTA bus routes 4, 53, and the Broad Street Line subway. In-person Spanish & Chinese interpretation will be available at the meeting.
