Written by jrood

DRPA CEO and PATCO President John J. Matheussen said there will be two open houses in Philadelphia on an Alternatives Analysis for expanding transit to Philadelphia's Waterfront. The first open house is scheduled for September 22 and the second will be held on September 30. Identical information will be posted at both open houses.

According to Matheussen, "It
is important to us to hear the public’s input before plans are finalized. The
open house format will allow those who are interested to view the plans in
detail and speak directly with the public, officials and community
organizations about the proposed project."

Authority is a regional transportation agency. DRPA owns and operates the
Benjamin Franklin, Walt Whitman, Commodore Barry and Betsy Ross Bridges, PATCO
