Coming Soon ... "The Circuit"
Since the 1970s, the Greater Philadelphia region has really focused on expanding its trail system for biking, jogging, etc.
The good news is that it's been working!
Fast forward 40 years and look where things are now. Our regional trail system has become so large and diverse, that Mayor Nutter has taken the initiative to condense all of our hard work into one large, expansive trail network.
Welcome to The Circuit!
250 miles of local trail work is currently in existence, with another 50 miles being constructed as we speak. The goal of The Circuit is to have a total of 750 miles connecting many parts of the tri-state area. The best news is that the cost to do so is relatively inexpensive when compared to highway funding, and the entire project could be realized within 25 years.
What do you think about Mayor Nutter's vision?
