* Schuylkill River Trail Closure Update: *

Starting on Monday, September 11, 2023, a small section of the Schuylkill River Trail (SRT) alongside the Flat Rock Dam between Leverington Ave. in Manayunk and Shawmont Station will be closed to all pedestrians and bikers.

The trail will be closed through the end of 2023. Temporary suspension of trail use is necessary for pedestrian and biker safety as the work along the steep embankment is completed. This closure will include all trail-impacting work activities for the remainder of the project.

During this time, you will notice closure signs on both ends of the obstructed portion: one at the Shawmont Station at Shawmont Ave. and Nixon St., and one just below Leverington Ave. on the Manayunk Towpath. Walkers and bikers will be able to travel further on the SRT toward the worksite but will meet a dead end at the worksite and will be required to turn around.
