Work begins this spring to build the connecting trail between Canal Park and the Route 202 Cross County Trail. The 0.3 mile off-road path along River Road will provide a 10-foot-wide, shared-use trail for pedestrians and bicyclists, separated from traffic by grass buffers.
This project is the most structurally-intensive of the Township's long-term plans to create a connected system of trails that is safe and respectful of the environment and our history. This new section makes several safety improvements along River Road, including a dedicated left turn lane at the Route 202 intersection, curb ramps and crosswalks, and extensive signage. Work is expected to be completed in November 2017.
The Township has worked closely with federal, state and county officials to secure permits and funding for the project, including a $1.7 million grant from the state Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, federal matching funds and private developer fees.
A few good habits in gardening and lawn care can be a tremendous help to protecting our ground water resources. From reducing the impact of local area flooding to maintaining the quality of our drinking water, stormwater management is an important part of sustaining the Solebury ecology.
Here's a recent article from Townships Today that summarizes many of the key points to reducing stormwater runoff and protecting the quality of our waterways and ground water. Additional resources can be found here, on the Township's website.
