Spring Garden Connector

Experience The Spring Garden Connector

The Spring Garden Connector is a pedestrian and vehicular underpass that links an up-and-coming Philadelphia neighborhood with the Delaware River waterfront, an emerging entertainment district. At night, the existing roadway lighting provides adequate illumination for the roadway but an unappealing environment for pedestrians. The new lighting is designed to add lighted portals at the entries to the SEPTA station and cast light through suspended, cut metal sheets to illuminate the walls. The color-changeable effects will reinforce the time of day and provide visual brightness to ameliorate the cave effect. The lighting integrated with environmental graphics will provide an identity and a welcoming safe passage for residents, visitors, and commuters.
