Green City, Clean Waters – American Street

Big Impact from American St. Green Features

We're excited to bring green infrastructure improvements to the American Street revitalization project that's now underway in Kensington South. On top of adding new natural landscaping features to the corridor, these green tools will soak up 1.4 million gallons runoff every time it rains!

Awesome effort by the entire project team – Gilmore, JMT and KMJ Consulting. KMJ led the stakeholder engagement, designed curb ramps and traffic control. The Philadelphia Department of Streets, Philadelphia Water Department and Department of Commerce are great clients. We’re so excited to see American Street under construction!
