Pedestrians in West, South and Northwest Philly have something to look forward to in the coming year.
The city has approved a grant to help build pedestrian plazas at four busy intersections in those parts of the city.
PlanPhilly reports the trend sparked by parklets and the 30th Street Station Porch will make the following intersections more pedestrian-friendly:
48th Street, Florence and Baltimore avenues
42nd Street and Woodland Avenue
South Street and Passyunk Avenue
Washington Lane and Stenton Avenue
All four should be ready by the spring.
