Rail tales The road to Ephrata is a long haul
Plans for a recreational trail connecting Lititz and Ephrata, via what used to be the Reading Railroad line, by the end of 2017 are chugging along at a slow pace.
Last week, Warwick Township supervisors unanimously approved a grant application in hopes of funding the next phase.
"We are going for a very small grant right now," said Dan Zimmerman, township manager. "It is only about 20,000 feet in the vicinity of Newport Road and Rothsville Road, and the railroad bridge."
He added that he is confident the funds will continue to be available in the future, walking the entire project to completion. When done, the trail will traverse Warwick Township (starting at Oak Street in Lititz), Akron, Ephrata Township and Ephrata Borough.
"This is a very viable transportation system for pedestrians and bicycles alike," Zimmerman said. "It takes time to do 7.2 miles, and each area has its own challenges, from culverts to bridges."
Completion of the rails-to-trails projects is planned for 2016 or 2017 if all work remains on schedule. More TRAIL, page A3
