Rails to Trails Project Underway

Project underway to bring rail trail into Wellsboro, mends erosion issues

 

by John Vogt - January 4, 2018

A project 13 years in the making is breaking ground, literally. Due to heavy erosion and dangerous creek levels, areas of the Pine Creek are being moved to better protect local residents homes from flooding and to make way for an extension of the Rail Trail.

“We started this thirteen year ago,” said Grant “Skip” Cavanaugh, Co-Chairman of the Tioga County Trail Authority. “We were concerned with the erosion as the water was pushing underneath the railroad and into our back lawns. At the time of high water…the water…gets to be four feet higher than our lawns on the other side. It has not washed out since 1946, but there’s always that time.”

Many hands have been a part of this project, including retired Tioga County Planner Jim Weaver, Tioga County Trail Authority secretary Marilyn Jones, Wellsboro Borough Manager Scot Boyce, our country commissioners, Representative Baker and the railroad, to name just a few. Construction for this project is moving forward and when completed will connect downtown Wellsboro to The Pine Creek Rail Trail.
