Newtown Creek Coalition Proposes a New Pedestrian Bridge

Newtown Creek Coalition Proposes a New Pedestrian Bridge | Newtown News of Interest | Scoop.it

At the September 16, 2019, "Work Session" meeting of the Newtown Township Board of Supervisors, Mike Sellers, a member of the Newtown Creek Coalition, invited the Township to join in a project to construct a pedestrian bridge over the Newtown Creek in a partnership with the Borough of Newtown and the Coalition.

 

The prospective site for the bridge would connect Sycamore Street in Newtown Township with Frost Lane in Newtown Borough. With all of the new restaurants that are opening up in Newtown (Harvest Grille, Turning Point, etc.), some residents of the Borough feel the need for better access from North State Street/Edgeboro Drive to the Sycamore Street area.

 

There are other bridges over the creek that allow pedestrians to cross. So, why is another bridge needed or desired?
