Schuylkill River Trail Detour Begins March 15

From Montgomery County Parks Website

New Development

A new condominium development is starting construction on March 1, 2005, at the intersection of W. Elm Street and Oak Street in Conshohocken Borough. During construction the Trail will be diverted onto a short detour along W. Elm Street (a side path) and Oak Street (share the road and sidewalks). As part of the construction, the developer will be building a new permanent trail along the Plymouth Creek and along the SEPTA Tracks to make the connection between Colwell Lane and Stoddard Street. The new trail will also make a connection to the new Cross County Trail and will be wider than the existing Trail area with new landscaping and connections to the new condos. Users should be aware that the detour may last for a period of 6-10 months.
