Philly Free Streets

The City of Philadelphia’s Managing Director’s Office of Transportation & Infrastructure Systems announced the temporary vehicular closure of 7-plus miles of streets on September 24 to promote all manner of good-natured pedestrian use and assembly.

Dubbed Philly Free Streets, the event will take place from 8am-1pm from Front and South to the Schuylkill River Trail, along MLK Drive and into Fairmount Park.

There is no formal start of finish point on the route; people are encouraged to start at any point along the route and enjoy the opportunities to see the city’s waterways, art, architecture and diverse neighborhoods like never before.

Additional information and a survey are available at the Philly Free Streets website.  Volunteer and community engagement opportunities are also available.
