Behavior, the interaction of modes, and unusual design characteristics combine to put the traveling public at greater risk of harm.


The Boulevard separates local communities because it is difficult for every type of user to cross 12 lanes of traffic to access services, schools, employment, and attractions.


People who walk, wheel, transit, bicycle, and drive experience unexpected delays, aging sidewalks, narrow medians, and limited bicycle facilities, making travel along the Boulevard unpredictable and frustrating.


As the defining piece of transportation infrastructure in Northeast Philadelphia, the Boulevard does not welcome every type of user and falls short of its potential to bolster the social and economic vibrancy of neighboring communities.
