**WARRENDALE BAYNE ROAD CLOSURE**
Allegheny County Department of Public Works today announced that Warrendale Bayne Road in the Municipality of Marshall Township will be closed beginning at 9:00 AM on September 19, 2017 for the replacement of Big Sewickley Bridge No. 18. Big Sewickley Bridge No. 18 is located on Warrendale Bayne Road directly off of Spang Road for approximately 275 feet. Traffic will be detoured using Warrendale Bayne Road, Mingo Road, Wexford Bayne Road, and Big Sewickley Creek Road. The closure is anticipated to last until the middle of November.
The work is being done as part of the 2017 Capital Bridge Repair Project, which is a $2.03 million construction contract to address four structurally deficient bridges throughout the county. This work is being done by Pugliano Construction of Plum, PA.

Feedback Requested: The Commodore Perry Regional Trail – Connecting Communities.
Effective regional planning addresses the needs of the present while looking toward the possibilities of the future. It is forward-thinking, innovative, and collaborative. It looks at the bigger picture, without being constrained by municipal borders or county boundaries.
The Townships of Adams, Cranberry, Jackson, Marshall, and Pine, each are actively working to enhance and expand their sidewalk and trail networks. The intention behind these efforts is to create connections between people and key places – parks, schools, neighborhoods, and commercial areas.
With each municipality working on similar goals within their own borders, a task force was formed in 2016 to facilitate the exchange of ideas and open lines of communication. Through those discussions, an idea was formed. An idea to plan together. To work together. To outline a vision for a regional active transportation network that, at the time, did not exist. By opening the lines of communication, and discussing each municipalities interests and shared goals, a coordinated effort was undertaken to chart a path forward.
People. Places. Paths.
Western Pennsylvania is home to a variety of recreational amenities, including regionally significant trails such as the North Country Trail, Industrial Heartlands Trail, The Rachel Carson Trail, regional parks, bodies of water. The participating municipalities provide exceptional community parks and recreational services to their residents. However, none of these amenities are connected to each other, when they are all in relative proximity to each other.
The draft Commodore Perry Regional Trail route highlights the existing sidewalk and trail networks of Adams, Cranberry, Jackson, Marshall, and Pine Townships, and the missing links needed to create a regional route – a hybrid of sidewalks and trails. This route will provide an immediate benefit to each community, by creating connections to local destinations. Over time, the successful implementation of this vision will create a network of sidewalks and trails that link to amenities across the region.
Please visit the Marshall Township website to view the route in greater detail and to provide public input on the plan. The plan will be reviewed by the Marshall Township Parks & Recreation Committee on Thursday, September 28, 2017, and also by the Marshall Township Planning Commission on Tuesday, October 10, 2017. The plan could be reviewed for adoption by the Marshall Township Board of Supervisors at its meeting on November 6, 2017.
Marshall Township would appreciate as much feedback from its residents as possible regarding this proposed addition to the community! Please e-mail us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
