The Multi-Modal Connections Study of Washington Street and the Riverfront of Spring Mill Station, is being conducted to improve a regionally important junction of pedestrian, bicycle, vehicle, and commuter-train transportation options. This junction is located in the Spring Mill area of Whitemarsh, along the Schuylkill River, and the Schuylkill River Trail (SRT), the Manayunk/Norristown Line SEPTA suburban commuter regional rail station, and the main roads of Hector, Lee and Washington streets. This study is funded by a Transportation and Community Development Initiative (TCDI) Grant through Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC).
