Trail Updates

Cobbs Creek Bikeway - This project is under construction, some paving has already taken place.

Delaware River Heritage Trail - Preliminary Engineering is nearly complete, final design to begin sometime in 2005. See the D&R canal for details about the northernmost segment.

Delaware and Raritan Canal:Bordentown to Trenton - Trail will use the Riverline RR Bridge over Crosswicks Creek. Final design has been complete for over two years and this project is ready for construction. However the NJ Parks and Forests construction budget has been zeroed out for the past two years. Construction will begin in 2005 if money is allocated.

Liberty Bell Trail - A feasibility study is nearly complete with a trail alignment agreed upon. More details will be forthcoming with an Open House
Location: Souderton Borough Hall
Date: Wednesday, November 17, 2004
Time: 5:30 to 7:30 PM

Radnor Trail - Trail is paved and scheduled to officially open later this month. However we have reports that the trail is already being used. Links to new trail photos.

Wissahickon Green Ribbon Trail - This trail will run from the Forbidden Drive trailhead on Northwestern Ave in Chestnut Hill to Fort Washington State Park. The first segment along Northwestern Ave will be going under construction in April. Tentatively the rest of the path is scheduled to go under construction in the fall of 2005 with completion expected around the end of the year. This is subject to change, as these timelines often fall back however it should be noted that the County kept its word on the construction timeline of the Perkiomen Trail so keep your fingers crossed.
