Green Ribbon Trail to be Closed for Ongoing BoRit Asbestos Site Cleanup

As part of its ongoing cleanup of the BoRit Asbestos Superfund Site, the US Environmental Protection Agency will be conducting waste removal and stream-bank restoration activities within the Wissahickon Creek starting April 10th.

For safety purposes, the Green Ribbon Trail will be closed between the Mount Pleasant Avenue and Butler Pike Bridges while this work is being conducted.

EPA anticipates that the trail closure will last approximately 10 working days starting April 10th. Any questions regarding EPA’s work or the trail closure can be directed to Gina Soscia, EPA’s community involvement coordinator, at 215-814-5538 or
