Blairsville accepts trail proposal

Date: 8/19/2011

Blairsville Borough council on Tuesday accepted a proposal from the 12th Congressional Regional Equipment Center to develop a long-planned hiking and biking trail bordering the Conemaugh River. The panel also discussed partnering with other local governing bodies to pursue federal funding for a proposed bridge for pedestrians and bicyclists in adjacent Burrell Township.

Borough Manager Tim Evans said the 12th REC has offered to complete work on the Blairsville riverfront trail for $281,465, the amount of grant funds that have been awarded for the project by the state Department of Conservation and Natural Resources. "That would enable us to get going on the trail," he said, noting the borough has until June 30 of next year to expend and close out the grant.
