Quietly, with little fanfare, the most complicated and involved trail construction project, the Schuylkill Banks boardwalk, has been underway since this past September. It will extend the Schuylkill River Trail southward from the Locust Street crossing to the South Street Bridge, connecting to it via a ramp on the north side and set of stairs on the south side.
Today, cement was poured to create the Boardwalk's first pier. The slide showbelow has photos taken in September, October, November and today, including an overhead drawing of the Boardwalk. All photos taken by Lane Fike of Schuylkill River Development Corporation.
