29th Street Pedestrian Bridge Ribbon Cutting

Fairmount CDC hosts Ribbon Cutting to Celebrate 29th Street Pedestrian Bridge Lighting


Philadelphia, PA- The Fairmount Community Development Corporation (CDC) hosted a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony on October 7, 2019 to celebrate the lighting project on the 29th Street Pedestrian Bridge in the Fairmount section of Philadelphia.


The bridge at 29th and Pennsylvania Avenues connects to a set of trails in Fairmount Park that lead directly to Lemon Hill and Boathouse Row, both major centers of cultural and economic activity. Improving connections to these areas will help benefit the community of small businesses, as well as increase overall safety in the adjacent areas.
