Excerpt from South Philadelphia: The Abolishment of Grade Crossings and the Creation of Opportunities for Commercial and Industrial Development

Park into anything that would prove satisfactory, so that they entered with enthusiasm upon a study of how this freight line could be carried under Broad Street. Carrying the Belt Line farther north than had originally been planned, and then allowing it to pass under Broad Street, gave the length of yard to the East of Broad Street that the railroad felt was necessary. Another difficulty that had stood in the way of this development had been the feeling on the part of the railroads that wharf property developed immediately to the north of League Island Park would not be as desirable as that they were being asked to vacate farther north. Some studies were made which indicated that docks at this point will not be any more likely to fill than those farther up the river.

Again, comprehensive studies had been made as to the way in which this line was to be carried through the plant of the Atlantic Refining Company, without doing undue damage to that plant, and without involving the parties at interest in undue damage costs.

These and other engineering difficulties were finally re moved. The plan as developed was turned over early in the year to the executive officers of the railroads, and the series of conferences begun in the Mayor's office, which have now been consummated.
