Spring Garden Greenway improvement project begins May 22

May 3, 2010

A note from Northern Liberties Neighbors Association:

The first step in our Spring Garden Greenway improvement project comesSaturday, May 22!
We'll be planting 55 cedar trees along the I-95 right-of-ways. These trees will obscure the ugly highway overpass and start us on the way to making the Spring Garden corridor better looking, greener, and more usable - a gateway to the El and to the riverfront.

If you can be involved for the day or a half-day on the 21st or 22nd, please email Erika Goldberg, (or
