Future Broad Street between Crescent Dr & Intrepid Ave

Broad Street Quay Wall Reconstruction Announcement

BACKGROUND

Starting later this month, the Navy Yard will begin the reconstruction of the section of Broad Street between Crescent Dr and Intrepid Ave, also known as the “quay wall”. It’s a very complex project that has been in planning and procurement for many years, and once finished, will have four lanes for vehicles, a two-way raised bike lane, and a new, scenic pedestrian plaza overlooking the Reserve Basin.

This construction project will take approximately 12 months to complete. During this time, Broad Street will be closed between Crescent Dr and Intrepid Ave.

The $19 million+ total project cost is in part funded by PennDOT, the U.S. Economic Development Administration (EDA), City of Philadelphia, and PIDC.

Pedestrians will be able to use the sidewalk on the east side of Broad Street Quarters buildings (between the Quarters buildings and One Crescent Drive parking lot).
