Bucks County planners are seeking the public's help to study the viability of new outdoor trails connecting the Newtown area to the Delaware & Lehigh trail system.


The trails will provide a connection between the Newtown area — where the future Neshaminy Greenway Trail, Greenway Trail, Newtown Rail Trail and Newtown area trails converge — and the Delaware River, including Yardley Borough, Washington Crossing and Delaware Canal State Park.


The new trails would essentially bind the communities of Newtown, Washington Crossing and Yardley and may eventually serve as part of the Sept. 11 National Memorial Trail, Bucks County planner Christian Regosch said in a virtual presentation.


Planners are taking community input through Oct. 30. Click here to take the survey.

Meanwhile, the Lower Dolington Road Multi-Use Trail in Newtown Twp is delayed due to #COVID19 restrictions & work will not start on it until next year.
