Forbidden Drive Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
On both sides of the cement bridge near the Lincoln Drive end of Forbidden Drive (near Help Locator 500), storm runoff has created rocky and uneven conditions that need attention.

05/12/2014 A large tree has fallen across the Wissahickon Bike Trail, a hundred yards or so below where the Henry Avenue bridge crosses over the trail.
Also, many parts of the trail are covered with mud left by the recent flooding and need to be cleaned off.
Another open issue nearby issue is:

A large hole on one of the wooden bridges on the Manayunk Canal Path has been uncovered. A temporary plywood patch was removed. The hole endangers walkers, runners, and bicyclists.
In the event that Philly Parks & Recreation/Fairmount Park Commission checks it out before a volunteer fixes it, maybe they could look into SeeClickFix # 10066 too.

07/18/2013 On the relatively recently repaired Manayunk Canal path, there are ruts on the “hump” for upper lock (#68). This is a danger to cyclists, runners, and walkers. Also, drainage issues continue on the upper side.
This section should have been paved with blacktop similar to the sections around the bridges.
Also, there are ruts and washouts on the older section of the canal path between Cotton Street and Lock Street.
Vegetation is overgrowing much of the canal path – why doesn’t the crew that mows one foot along the edges cut back the vegetation?
Another nearby SeeClickFix issue, “Concrete barricade blocking bike path” continues to be unaddressed by Philly Parks and Recreation. Are they waiting for a lawsuit?

One of the Center Trusses on the Pedestrian Foot Bridge (serial# 8ao43s or 8a043s) is about to fail, it has almost completely rotted through. The Fix is cheap, simple and easy, other truss sections have been repaired on this bridge using 2ft of ~6" C-Channel and a Mig Welder. Should require 1 person w/portable generator 1-2 hours to fix, with less than $50 of materials.

Last week (July 29) a large (24" dia. trunk) tree fell across the Wissahickon Bike Path just south of the Henry Avenue bridge. Crews and their trucks may be able to reach this location by crossing the old Hermit Lane bridge from Lincoln Drive.
