Philadelphia's Lost Waterfront
Scissor Ramps and Viaduct
We're about to get back to street level.
This viaduct's excessive height was dictated by the need to clear the Interstate. The two vehicular ramps are popularly called the “scissor ramps”. There are plans afoot nowadays to remove the scissor ramps in order to make Penn's Landing more appealing for commercial and residential development.
Keep going straight along the left sidewalk, towards the corner.
