County more bike friendly PICTURE SUPPLIED This map shows the six different phases of the Clinton County Rail Path strategy. IMAGE SUPPLIED This map reveals the 6 various phases of the Clinton County Rail Trail plan. LOCK SANCTUARY — — Driving along the McElhattan bridge, you might notice a biking and walking trail that snakes under it. That path is 2.2 miles of the planned 11.5-mile Clinton County Rail Path, and it’s currently in usage quite regularly. The Rail Trail “is our No. 1 top priority as Clinton County,” stated county preparation director Katie de Silva during a presentation on cycling, tracks and neighborhood at the April 12 conference of the Lock Sanctuary Kiwanis Club. As soon as the job is completed, it will serve around 22,000 individuals, extending from Castanea Municipality to Jersey Coast. County and town authorities are presently dealing with the second phase of the trail, which will link Castanea Municipality to Wayne Township, beginning at the Castanea train station. They will soon work on connecting the beginning of the Wayne Area community park to the already-completed part of the trail in Wayne Area. The next phase of the project worries the 860-foot-long abandoned railway bridge that links Wayne Area to Pine Creek Municipality. The county solid waste authority owns the bridge, which it utilized to carry landfill gas to Jersey Shore Steel numerous years ago. When funding gets approved for the project, the solid waste authority has committed to sell the bridge to the county so it can be converted into a walking and biking course. This is a profile of the deserted railway bridge that the county hopes will soon link Wayne Municipality to Pine Creek Township through the Clinton County Rail Path. County Neighborhood Planner Greg Smith said the bridge will require a 30-foot ramp leading up from the Spook Hollow Road side and a 22-foot ramp down the Pine Creek Municipality side in order to make it available under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Smith said the bridges will be made from concrete with railing on the side for safety purposes. As The Express formerly reported, the county has found a railway bridge engineer, John Conrad, to cover the bridge style and engineering. “This job is almost prepared to go, if the financing comes through,” said de Silva. To this day, the county has actually asked for $1.08 million from PennDOT and $84,775 from the state Department of Preservation and Natural Resources. Inning accordance with de Silva’s timeline, the financing will come through this June and the bridge style will end up by June 2020. Construction could begin as early as September 2020 and finish a year later on. As soon as the state approves the bridge financing, the fifth installation of the Rail Path task will connect the railway bridge to the Pine Creek Rail Trail trailhead in Jersey Shore. That trail runs 62 miles through Lycoming, Potter and Tioga counties up to Wellsboro Junction, boasting panoramas of the Pine Creek Gorge and numerous bed and breakfasts, dining establishments and shops. PICTURES OFFERED The planned Clinton County Rail Trail is to begin at the Castanea train station. The part of the path that goes from Castanea to Wayne Area is set to open later on this year. A sixth portion of the Rail Path project will link the Chestnut Grove Park complex to the Castanea train station so that cyclists and outdoors enthusiasts can more easily link to the trail. De Silva also stated the existing (and prepared) Rail Path connects to numerous other state routes, including the Mid-State Path, which goes through Woolrich and Tioga. Following an effort to make the Rail Trail more tourist friendly, de Silva and Smith unveiled plans for an outdoor bathroom at the Castanea train station called an Enviro-Loo. The design does not utilize any water or electrical power and each stall is self-contained, similar to a Port-a-Potty. Inning accordance with de Silva, the caboose at the train station is noted as a rental on AirBnb and she anticipates more operations like that to turn up once the path is linked. In addition to revealing the Rail Path progress, Bob Dwyer, who is on the Middle Susquehanna Bike and Pedestrian Committee, went over mapping and constructing a safe bike path between Mill Hall and Lock Sanctuary. He stated he frequently bikes from Mill Hall, where he lives, to Lock Sanctuary, and found numerous harmful areas that may hurt bicyclists or prevent them from cycling the route. When it comes to the intersection of the US-220 on-ramp and Hogan Boulevard, “it’s not a good, safe location for crossing,” he said. If the neighborhood wishes to achieve a safe bike route, he stated, everyone should collaborate. He recommended that the municipalities of Bald Eagle Township, Flemington Borough and Lock Haven deal with landowners, company owner, PennDOT (for funding purposes), the Clinton County Economic Collaboration Transport Committee, the Middle Susquehanna Bike and Pedestrian Committee and the SEDA-COG Municipal Preparation Committee. There are various interests at play and different needs to consider, he stated, but with neighborhood action, a city portion of the county might end up being more bike friendly.
