The City Avenue Special Services District has received a $1.7 million Commonwealth Financing Authority grant from the Multimodal Transportation Fund to reconnect Presidential Boulevard to Monument Road in Bala Cynwyd.
Currently, the Target complex in Bala Cynwyd is not accessible from presidential Boulevard which means all traffic has to enter and exit from Monument Road. This has resulted in heavy congestion and numerous car accidents on Monument Road.
The project funded by the grant will improve traffic flow and safety in the area.
It will also add lighting along Presidential Boulevard, provide drainage improvements, and bus stop construction.
A new pedestrian and bicycle path will be created along Presidential Boulevard that will better serve the residents of the nearby Lincoln Green Apartments, Presidential City Apartments and guests of the Courtyard by Marriott Philadelphia City Avenue Hotel.
The total estimated cost of the project is $2.7 million.
