Updates on I95 rebuild project
PUBLIC MEETING: MONDAY, AUGUST 15TH 6:30PM
Meeting ID: 893 2083 7852 Passcode: e8XJtp
I95 is currently built on fill (dirt) for most of its NL stretch. The NLBID is advocating for I95 to rebuilt on viaduct (columns) which would open the space beneath for a reconnection to the waterfront, managed parking, athletic amenities, and programmable public space within a block of the 2nd Street commercial corridor. Take a moment to review the slide deck presentation showing our plan.
We are collecting petition signatures for this plan to demonstrate support to elected officials and PennDot. Please take a moment to sign our petition and show your support.
