The City of Philadelphia has completed a robust public engagement for the Spring Garden Street Improvement Project. The people have spoken, and it is clear that the public wants to see a much safer, more beautiful Spring Garden Street, especially for people walking and biking — an overwhelming 89 percent of respondents favored curbside protected bike lanes.
But the visionary plans for Spring Garden Street will remain on the shelf unless the City advances the planning and design forward. The Circuit Trails Philadelphia Action Team now has a petition to make the Spring Garden Street Greenway top priority and seek federal funding for the remaining stages of design and construction in order to complete it by 2025.
If you want safe crosstown protected bike lanes that serve the East Coast Greenway and the Circuit Trails Network, please sign the petition.
And if you want to learn more about the Spring Garden Street Greenway in general, watch this video and check out the Circuit Trails Coalition Press Release for Spring Garden Street.

Love the new plan!
Biking is an important means of transportation and had great appeal to visitors. Please make Philly an even more exciting place to live or visit
My stepdaughter commutes to and from work in Philly and would use the lane on a regular basis. I wish you success in this worthy cause and I’ll be sure to ride it in 2025 when I’m 76 years old.
Just do it.
Just taking on new responsibilities with my job that will take me between two sites–one of which is right on Spring Garden. The bikeway will make my commute that much safer and enjoyable if I can use Indego rather than a car.
This is so needed! Protect the bikers!
