Become Part of the Planning Process: Lower Neshaminy Creek Trail Study Review

December 1, 2015

The County of Bucks has prepared a study on the feasibility of establishing a trail along the Lower Neshaminy Creek corridor extending from the confluence of the Neshaminy Creek with Core Creek, at the intersection of Bridgetown Pike and Newtown-Langhorne Road (PA 413), to Bristol Road at the Neshaminy Falls rail station. The study:

  • identifies potential trail routes;
  • evaluates connections to existing park and trail facilities, town centers, recreational areas, historic sites, and commercial areas;
  • provides an estimate of probable costs to develop the trail; and
  • identifies implementation strategies. 

The study, prepared by the Bucks County Planning Commission, will serve as a resource to the County as well as municipalities working on grant applications. The study will also act as a starting point for preliminary engineering efforts. 

The project was financed in part by a grant from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Commonwealth Financing Authority, administered by the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED). Funding provided by the Commonwealth Financing Authority was made possible by funds transferred to the Commonwealth Financing Authority from the Marcellus Legacy Fund.

The study will be available for comment and review beginning Tuesday, December 1, 2015 on the Bucks County Planning Commission website:
