UPJ receives grant for sidewalk, bike path

March 3, 2018 GMT

The University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown has received a $500,000 grant from the Department of Transportation to begin a sidewalk and bike path construction project connecting the campus to the nearby Richland Town Centre.

The first phase of the project includes a paved bike path and sidewalk connecting Pitt-Johnstown, Pennsylvania Highlands Community College, Richland School District, Highland Community Library, Richland Township Municipal Building and Richland Town Centre.

It is envisioned that with additional funding, subsequent phases will connect Theatre Drive businesses and residents, including the Graystone Court Villas, to the campus and Richland Town Centre, extend the trail through the Richland Industrial Park to the Johnstown Galleria and connect existing university bike trails to the region’s trail infrastructure.
