There was no golden shovel groundbreaking but a sign on Pearl Street and a few holes in the ground next to the Ben Franklin Bridge in Camden indicates that another TIGER
project is underway.

Meanwhile an adjacent project on Martin Luther King Blvd includes Camden's first bike lanes. The short two block bike lane is between 7th St and Broadway near Cooper Hospital and the Walter Rand Transportation Center. The TIGER project will build bike lanes from the Camden Waterfront to 5th St, leaving a one block gap between 5th and Broadway.

In other TIGER news the Port Richmond Trail
has been put out for bid with construction slated to begin in late summer or early fall. The project follows Allegheny and Delaware Avenues next to the Tioga Marine Terminal and will be part of the East Coast Greenway. This only leaves the complex Schuylkill Banks Boardwalk
project on the drawing board.
