Back It Up

Delaware Street Reopens on Schedule

15-PARSON-002-Back-It-Up-on-Delaware-700x400Four weeks after the first breaker hit the asphalt, Delaware Street has reopened as promised with streetcar tracks from 3rd Street to Independence Avenue, a pedestrian median at 5th Street and several new red crosswalks.

In addition, the parking configuration on Delaware Street has changed. On-street parking is now on the east side of Delaware Street and is back-in angle parking, or reverse angle parking, between 3rd and 5th Streets. Motorists are encouraged to “Back It Up” into the parking spaces. New signage is placed in the area to help alert motorists of the change. Prior to track construction, on-street parking was on the opposite (or west) side of the street.
