Trailblazer Award 2021 details
Since the Feasibility Study was completed in 2010, a lot has been completed.
A new bicycle/pedestrian bridge was installed near Four Square Church. See photos The area near the bridge also received much needed improvements for stormwater management and streambed stabilization. Reynolds Street was improved and new sidewalks were installed along Reynolds Street, all the way to the Post Office.
Pedestrian Crossing Signals were added across Middle Street, near the "blue bridge," and across Chambersburg Street, near the Post Office. These signals will improve the safety for pedestrians and cyclists needing to cross these busy streets.
Part of the Biser Trail was widened to accomodate bicyclists.
An off road multi-use path was created along Lefever Street by the Middle School.
Bicycle lanes were created along Steinwehr Avenue.
Share-the-road markings called "sharrows" were added to Queen Street, sections of West Street and West High Street between the Rec Park and the "blue bridge," and on Springs Avenue.
A borough ordinance was passed to allow bicycles on sidewalks for much of Gettysburg except for sidewalks along Baltimore Street and Steinwehr Avenue and all sidewalks on or within one block of Lincoln Square. All bicyclists must yield to pedestrians. This offers a safe practical solution for children and adults that consider themselves vulnerable in road traffic.
The North Gettysburg Trail was built from the High School to East Broadway.
A new Gettysburg Bicycle User Map will be developed in 2018.
