New PENNDot grant spurs Bartram’s Mile construction

December 10, 2014

HUZZAH! More exciting updates on the Bartram’s Mile project, which will make Bartram’s Garden more accessible to the public than ever before!

“‘We can probably start this as soon as the weather is suitable in the spring,’ said Joe Syrnick, President and CEO of the Schuylkill River Development Corporation (SRDC), which will manage construction. If all goes well, he said, construction could be finished as early as late 2015.”
