The Far Northeast of Philadelphia isn’t the friendliest cycling landscape the city has to offer, with intimidating arterial roads like Roosevelt Boulevard and lots of residential streets that don’t connect. The proposed Lower Poquessing Creek Trail aims to change that, at least along the creek that serves as the city’s boundary with Bucks County.
The trail, an extension of the East Coast Greenway, will run from Junod Playground to Glen Foerd on the Delaware River. The Philadelphia City Planning Commission presented its preferred alignment for comment at a virtual meeting on May 25. You can also offer your comments via their online survey.
