Delaware Avenue study meant to improve traffic conditions

    There are many pieces to the Delaware Avenue/Columbus Boulevard traffic study, and one could ease the stress of drivers relatively soon.

    The Delaware River Waterfront Corporation and consultant Whitman, Requardt & Associates plan to re-time traffic lights on the avenue to prevent the constant stop-and-go of cars. Other changes are coming, too.


    PlanPhilly reports the study will result in recommendations for alleviating traffic at trouble spots and making the avenue more pedestrian friendly. Lanes will be consolidated in some cases to make room for a multi-purpose trail on the east side near the river.
