Construction on the third phase of the York County Heritage Rail Trail’s Northern Extension is expected to begin in June, York Daily Record has reported.
The extension will run along the Codorus Creek a little over a mile south from Route 30 in Springettsbury Township to North George St. near Smalls Athletic Field, according to a press release.
A groundbreaking ceremony for the $2.1 million extension was held on April 20. Construction, which is expected to run from June to December, includes building a bridge over Willis Run where the stream flows into the Codorus Creek.
“After we complete this phase of the Northern Extension, just eight blocks will separate York County from enjoying a rail trail that stretches more than 25 miles from the Mason-Dixon Line, through historic downtown York and to the beautiful John C. Rudy County Park,” Carl Knoch, chair of the York County Rail Trail Authority, was quoted as saying.
