Unfortunately, like many other important construction projects, work on the Fort Hunter Connector was halted due to the pandemic. It will start up again shortly. These efforts will be concentrated on finishing up the construction around and under Linglestown Road as well as the north end of Industrial Road. Look for the completion of the installation of fencing, paving, and wayfinding signage in the coming weeks. It is interesting to see the plans of Wilson Consulting come to life as Kinsley Construction builds a safe trail for all. While not officially open, many people have been enjoying the section of the trail along the river over the past couple of months.
In this area the Susquehanna River Basin Commission, headquarters on the trail on Front Street, has created a series of 10 educational panels that have been placed by Dauphin County along the river. Topics include “The River and the Chesapeake Bay,” “Rare Birds along the Susquehanna,” and “Managing Stormwater.” These panels have already added greatly to the experience of the trail and its expansive views of the Susquehanna River. Thank you Susquehanna River Basin Commission.
