Hi Trail Supporter,
A disused bridge in Beaver County could be transformed to connect the region to a 1,500-miles-plus trail network spanning 51 counties in four states.
Or it could be lost forever.
Our partners at RiverWise and the Ohio River Trail Council are working to save Black’s Run Bridge and transform it into a key trail connection.
Saving Black’s Run Bridge will help create a 15-mile loop of trails along the Ohio River between Monaca and Ambridge and connect the region to the Industrial Heartland Trails Coalition trail network—a Rails-to-Trails Conservancy TrailNation™ project that will connect the largest shared-use trail system in North America for tourism, physical activity and recreation.
This initiative has implications for Western Pennsylvania, Ohio and beyond, so we urge you to send the petition to anyone in the region who is willing to share their voice for local trails. You can keep up with the campaign throughout October on RiverWise’s website.
