Philadelphia Zoo Beautification

The Philadelphia Zoo’s 42-acre Victorian garden is home to more than 1,300 animals, many of them rare and endangered.

The Zoo, fulfilling its mission of conservation, science, education and recreation, supports and engages in conservation efforts to protect endangered species around the world. Cheetahs, hippos, giraffes and much more make the Zoo Philadelphia’s leading family attraction. The Zoo seasonally offers the Children’s Zoo, giant Swan Boat rides, zookeeper talks, a magical Treehouse with interactive activities for children and much more.

The Zoo at 3400 W. Girard Ave. attracts more than 1.2 million visitors a year.

But how it could be more attractive and bountiful for visitors?

$9 million will launch by Philadelphia Zoo for traffic-and-safety improvements in coming months, that will ease traffic flow from off ramps of I-76, a source of expressway back-ups on peak visitation days.

Other upgrades will be done to traffic signals and signage; streetscape and sidewalk and bus “pull-offs” at existing SEPTA stops.

Much of the project will be paid for with a $7.18 million federal transportation grant.

This is the effort on the part of many partners and stakeholders, including PennDOT, SEPTA, the City of Philadelphia Streets Department, and Fairmount Park, who have each supported this important project.

Completion is scheduled for 2012.
