Mastriano Announces $735,000 for Pedestrian and Bicycle Route in Chambersburg

HARRISBURG – Sen. Doug Mastriano (R-33) today announced nearly $735,000 has been awarded for a pedestrian and bicycle route project in Chambersburg.

“These dollars will help build a walkway and bicycle route connecting different parts of the community in a way that will enhance our neighborhoods,” Mastriano said. “Whether as a means to travel from one place to another or as recreational activities, walking and biking play important roles in building strong communities.”

The project involves permanently closing two street blocks to vehicular traffic adjacent to the former Southgate Shopping Center to create a pedestrian and bicycle-only route. The project will create direct pedestrian access from the neighboring senior housing and residential blocks to a new medical facility while establishing greater bicycle and pedestrian connectivity to the Southgate neighborhood and existing rail trail.

Funding for the project is being provided through the Transportation Alternatives Set-Aside program.
