Spring Garden El Stop Gets Stunning New Light Installations
Holy freaking moly, I LOVE this!
This week the Delaware River Waterfront Corporation (DRWC) unveiled their long-awaited ‘Spring Garden Street Connector Project’, a dramatic new lighting installation inside the massive and formerly dimly lit I-95/Market-Frankford El overpass.
The beautiful new project was designed for DRWC by NV5 (Formerly The RBA Group) with Cloud Gehshan Associates and The Lighting Practice providing design expertise for the lighting and light panels. The installations serve as a welcoming gateway to and from the El’s Spring Garden street stop and Northern Liberties on one side and the Waterfront on the other!
I have used this stop literally countless times in my life since high school. Really could not be more pleased to see public transit stops getting some attention. Great work, y’all!
