In recognition of Philadelphia’s leadership in trail development and in celebration of several new world-class sections of the East Coast Greenway here in the City, Philadelphia has been chosen as the host city for the State of the Greenway Summit on Friday, May 1, 2015. The Summit will feature special remarks from regional and national bike-ped and transportation leaders, including PennDOT Secretary Leslie Richards and DVRPC Commissioner Diane Ellis-Marseglio.
When completed, the 2,900-mile greenway, which connects with the region’s Circuit trails, will link Philadelphia to major cities throughout the eastern seaboard. In PA, a car-free, 55-mile route runs from Trenton, N.J. to Wilmington, Del., through Center City Philadelphia.
The Summit will conclude with a walk along the Schuylkill River Trail, and an evening reception at the Schuylkill Banks Boardwalk from 5:30 to 7 p.m. The Summit and reception are open to the public; registration is $10 for ECGA members, $20 for non-members.
