The Philadelphia City Planning Commission (PCPC) and its engineering partner Michael Baker held a community meeting in East Falls last week to get feedback about plans to upgrade the Wissahickon Transportation Center, redevelop parcels between it and the movie theater, and create a new segment of the Schuylkill River Trail along the waterfront, and other improvements.

The proposed alignment of the SRT behind the bus terminal and around the PECO site can be seen here.

The event was well attended, and featured over a dozen posters that participants could interact with. Additionally, PCPC and Michael Baker had ample representatives present to answer questions and help the public participate. This is a multi-year project, with an as yet undefined start date. We will post updates as more information becomes available.
