4911-4913 Ridge Ave Philadelphia, PA
Walking along Ridge Avenue just west of Tommy Gunns parking lots is dangerous due to overgrown vegetation. The problem is made worse by the lack of proper curb in the same area.
This is along the most direct path between the Wissahickon Transfer Station and the Wissahickon SEPTA station. It is a very dangerous situation and could easily result in a pedestrian being struck by a vehicle.

Poor drainage along the Wissahickon Bike Trail has been causing the trail to become a water hazard and then, later, a mud bog. The picture is from several months ago, just after a spring flood.
Since the trail was renovated in 2007 with $1.4 million (federal funding), it would seem that there has been little or no maintenance to the bikeway by the city. Vegetation grows out over the path in the summer, and mud and leaves narrow the trail in many sections, dangerously crowding together the mix of cyclists, runners, and walkers.
This drainage problem is another example of the poor design and construction of the renovation, and the lack of maintenance since then. Other sections of the trail are too low and frequently flood, first leaving a pool of water and then leaving a covering of thick mud. It is located across from Wissahickon Hall (Lincoln Drive and Gypsy Lane).
Similar problems exist on the recently renovated, and also poorly designed and constructed Manayunk Canal path.

A lot of litter can be seen all over the hill next to Tommy Gun's on ridge? Who owns that property? Who is responsible for maintaining that piece of land? it looks terrible.

Several trees have dead limbs that are going to fall off. After every storm there are big branches laying on the ground that could have killed someone.
