The relocation of the on- and off-ramps at the Girard Avenue Interchange opens up the possibility for an improved gateway from the neighborhood into Penn Treaty Park. The northwest intersection of Columbia and Delaware avenues (above rendering) will be improved with new landscaping, public art and lighting improvements that will enhance the connection to the waterfront. This area will also include parking to replace that which was previously located in the median across from Penn Treaty Park. Designed in conjunction with the public art and lighting improvements of the Columbia Avenue Connector, this project will transform the pedestrian experience between Fishtown and Penn Treaty Park. The Delaware River Waterfront Corporation is a partner in this improvement.
