STREETS DEPARTMENT CLOSES LOCUST STREET AND RACE STREET
RAIL CROSSINGS FOR REPAIRS

PHILADELPHIA – Streets Commissioner Carlton Williams announced today the CSX gates at the Schuylkill River Trail are closed in both directions. The electric gate on the Race Street side is not working properly causing an unsafe condition. For the safety of trail users, the Streets Department has shut down the entire crossing including the gate on Locust Street side. The gates on both sides will be closed until repairs can be made. 

To access the bike trail, citizens are urged to use the access ramp at Market Street, the access point on Martin Luther King Drive across from the Art Museum, access stairs at Walnut St, or the pedestrian bridge in Schuylkill River Park just south of Locust St.

Notice will be sent when the gates are repaired and reopened. The Streets Department thanks citizens in advance for their patience and cooperation during the repairs.
