Project Overview

This project involved the evaluation of several trail alignments that will transition the existing Schuylkill River Trail alignment at the Reading Area Community College (RACC) to an on-road alignment along River Road in Reading, PA.

TPD was responsible for development of several trail alignment alternatives, conceptual plans, 3D rendering and stakeholders meetings. The project also includes trail crossing designs, green stormwater recommendations and road diet recommendations.

As the next phase of the project, TPD will be refining conceptual plans, completing cost estimates and assisting the Schuylkill River Heritage Area and the Berks Conservancy with public outreach and consensus building.

The project consists of 5 crossing designs, a 12 foot trail with 5 foot green storm water buffer, an on-road cycle track alternative and railroad crossing accommodations.
