The 13.4 Mile Neshaminy Trail Feasibility Study Includes New Bridge Over Newtown Creek | Newtown News of Interest |

The Bucks County Planning Commission is seeking public comment through Friday on a proposed 13.4-mile trail along part of Neshaminy Creek.


The feasibility study proposes a trail along the creek near state Route 232 (2nd Street Pike) in Wrightstown to Core Creek Park in Middletown.


While the study does include an estimated $11.4 million for construction and design costs, those estimates could change depending on how the project moves forward.


Bucks County Senior Transportation Planner Paul Gordon said in an email Monday the county is expected to secure funding and build the trail itself, but a municipality could opt to build its respective segment to expedite construction.


The study also includes a list of multiple private and public grants the county or town could apply for.
