Buffalo Valley Rail Trail may get longer

LEWISBURG —  The Buffalo Valley Rail Trail may be getting an extension.  While the trail is currently 9-miles long, some believe that is not long enough.

 

Lewisburg Borough is hoping to extend the trail to the West Branch Susquehanna River.  They will be holding an informational meeting on Thursday May 23, to discuss the proposed extension.  The purpose of the meeting is to present a general overview of the extension plans.  The focus will be on the section from 5th   Street to the West Branch Susquehanna River.  The area is currently occupied by St.   John Street.

 

Several concept designs will be shared and discussed during the meeting.  There will also be an opportunity for public input.  The extension is a collaborative effort being led by the Buffalo Valley Recreation Authority in partnership with Lewisburg Borough and EastBuffaloTownship. The project is being funded through a $5,000 mini-grant that was awarded by the Susquehanna Greenway Partnership.

 

The meeting on May 23 will be held at 7:00p.m. at the William Cameron Engine Department’s training facility located at the corner of North 5th Street and Buffalo Road in downtown Lewisburg.

For more information about the meeting, you can contact the BVRA at 570-524-4774 or by email at director@bvrec.org.  (Codi Jade)
