Project Description

Manayunk Bridge Connector Trail & Park

The Manayunk Bridge Trail was created by restoring a historic bridge after several decades of abandonment. In the process, the short but significant path linked two other popular trails in neighboring Montgomery and Philadelphia Counties — allowing a connection between communities that did not exist. The route crosses the Schuylkill River and Schuylkill Expressway (Interstate 76) and features separate areas for walking and bicycling, along with a shared plaza which is used for special events. A.P. installed railings and fencing which are in keeping with the historic industrial nature of the Manayunk Bridge bringing out the notable architecture of past times.

The Manayunk Bridge Trail offers sweeping views of the Schuylkill River, Schuylkill Canal, and downtown Manayunk making it a true bridge – connecting people and places. A.P. Construction is proud to have been involved in yet another high profile bridge project that beautifies the city and creates more usable public areas, from neglected space.
