Construction of the long-awaited Route 202 to Bradford Dam Connector Trail will begin during the week of May 25, 2020. This segment of trail has been in planning since 2013 and is being funded through the Open Space Fund approved by township voters in 2012. The township has successfully obtained a grant from the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission. Approximately 65 percent of the construction cost is funded through this grant, thereby substantially leveraging our Open Space contribution.
All construction will take place on property owned by Warrington Township. Normal work hours will be from 7:00 am until 5:00 pm. Occasionally, it may be necessary, on a case by case basis, to work on Saturdays, particularly if the project becomes delayed by inclement weather. Construction is not allowed on Sundays or holidays. The expected project duration is 90 days.
This segment of trail will begin near the intersection of Stump Road and Billingsley Drive and continue over township property to the intersection of Mill Creek Road and Pickertown Road. Future phases in the next few years will include another township project to extend the trail along Pickertown Road and Lower State Road to the intersection of Lower State Road and Bellflower Boulevard and a separate project by a private entity to extend the trail from the intersection of Pickertown Road and Lower State Road to the intersection of Street Road and Morning Walk Drive. This will essentially create a pedestrian/bike friendly route from Route 202 to Bradford Dam.
