With Grant, Viaduct Rail Park Could Start Construction Soon

Phase 1 of the project will improve the 1300 block of Noble Street and will transform a quarter-mile portion of the former Reading Viaduct into a green park with lit walking paths, seating, and gathering areas. The viaduct runs from 13th and Nobel streets across 12th Street to Callowhill Street

    With Grant, Viaduct Rail Park Could Start Construction Soon
    Construction on an expansive elevated Philadelphia park could begin as early as this fall thanks to a $3.5 million grant. The Center City District announced on Friday that construction of Phase 1 of the Viaduct Rail Park could begin this fall after a Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program grant was awarded by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
