Chester Valley Trail To Be Built in 2009?

We've heard this before, but according to the Inquirer Chester County officials insist that the Chester Valley Trail trail construction will commence in 2009 18 years after it was first proposed.










Completed section of the CV Trail in Exton

I'll remain skeptical until the construction contract is put out to bid, completion of the final design is still a year away and only Montgomery County has consistently shown that they can adhere to aggressive timetables. For example in Mercer County NJ we are still waiting for construction of the D&R Canal extension from Trenton to Bordentown 5 years after the construction plans were complete. Even the previously posted Westbank Greenway was construction ready 3 years ago.

Skyrocketing construction costs, local trail opposition, failed bids and tight budgets often hold up construction.

By the way the most absurd trail design setback was Vanguard forbidding the trail access after 9/11, apparently terrorist organizations are targeting investment firms on rollerblades and bicycles.

Why was there no follow on bankruptcy then? The bailout of AIG FP went to (wow power leveling) hedge funds that bound credit swaps on Lehman failing or others betting on rating (wow power leveling) declines. AIG has drained over 100 billion from the government. Which had to go to those who bet on failures and downgrades. Many of whom (power leveling)were hedge funds. I-banks that had offsetting swaps needed the money from the AIG bailout or they would have been caught. Its an (wow powerleveling) insiders game and it takes just a little bit too much time for most people to think (wow gold) through where the AIG 100 billion bailout money went to, hedge funds and players, many of whom hire from the top ranks of DOJ, Fed, Treasury, CAOBO

I live in Paoli, Pa. If anyone can tell me the closest place to get on the trail from here it would be appreciated.
