  Marsh Creek Greenway Project

 

Location: Delmar Township and Wellsboro Borough, Tioga County, Pennsylvania
Applicant: Tioga County
United States Department of Transportation
Better Utilizing Investments to Leverage Development (BUILD) Discretionary Grant Program – FY 2019

OVERVIEW

Tioga County is seeking $8,630,750 from the Better Utilizing Investments to Leverage Development (“BUILD”) Discretionary Grant Program to support the Marsh Creek Greenway Project (or “Project”). The requested funding will connect the Pine Creek Rail Trail to the Borough of Wellsboro, thereby expanding access to and availability of transportation infrastructure for rural citizens in Tioga County and surrounding jurisdictions. The Pine Creek Rail Trail currently connects Delmar Township, Tioga County to Jersey Shore, Lycoming County – a distance of 62 miles. The north-south corridor follows a converted railroad bed through the one of the state’s most popular tourism regions, connecting rural communities and cultural landmarks along the way. Tioga County is requesting BUILD grant funds to construct a 3.2-mile non-motorized trail from the northern terminus of the Pine Creek Rail Trail to the Borough of Wellsboro. The proposed trail connector is a long-standing trail initiative of statewide importance, recognized for its transportation, economic, and recreational benefits. The Marsh Creek Greenway Project will complete an identified missing link in the region’s active transportation network.

Take a Trip…

on the MCG Trail Map!

 

The proposed MCG begins in downtown Wellsboro at the
historic train station.

The trail traverses a wooded upland through the south section, crosses Tramp Hollow, and
drops in elevation to cross Marsh Creek.

The trail continues adjacent to the Wellsboro & Corning Railroad through the north section, crossing SR287 to connect with the Pine Creek Rail Trail.

 

“The benefits of this project
 are apparent…The new trail will
 add an educational and recreational
element for both our community
and visitors that will be immeasurable”
