"After months of talks, the city announced Tuesday that they acquired a swing bridge owned by Conrail to extend the trail. The city said a full announcement of the deal will be made at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 1 at Schuylkill Banks park. ... The approaches on each side, and the bridge in its entirety, will be repurposed into a functional, biking and pedestrian crossing that will connect the Grays Ferry Crescent Trail to the Bartram's Mile section of the Schuylkill River Trail system. Detailed design work is already underway, with construction projected to begin in 2018."
