City provides process schedule for Project Access endeavor to expand trail system, pedestrian infrastructure

YORK – The City of York has provided a process schedule for the Project Access endeavor, which will expand the city’s trail system and pedestrian infrastructure.

The city was awarded a grant of $15,625,000 for approximately nine miles of trails and a pedestrian overpass bridge.

As city officials have explained, “Project Access York will build pedestrian/bicycle safety infrastructure for York which will include an overpass over Highway 81 at the interchange area, as well as pedestrian and bicycle trails, as well as safe crosswalks for the schools.”

The grant was awarded last July.

The first public open house has been held.

Affected landowners will be able to learn more about their specific property impacts in late March. The affected landowners will receive certified letters with details on how to register for an appointment.

Another public open house will be held in April or May.

Right-of-way appraisals, negotiations and acquisitions will take place through April of 2025.

The final design will not be submitted until June of 2026.

The project letting will take place in August of 2026.

Construction is expected to take place between 2027 and 2030.
