Senator Mensch Announces Awarding of Department of Community and Economic Development’s Greenways, Trails and Recreation Program Funding to Lower Salford

HARRISBURG – Last night, Senator Bob Mensch (R-24) attended the Lower Salford Board of Supervisors meeting to announce the awarding of $130,000 from the Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED)’s Greenways, Trails, and Recreation Program.

The Senator was joined by the Lower Salford Township Board of Supervisors, as well as the Township Manager. These funds will help construct a sidewalk along Main Street, and the project will consist of concrete sidewalks and curb ramps.

This in turn will provide key sidewalk connection and enhance the safety of residents along Main Street (SR63) within the village of Harleysville. This project is a high township priority because of its central location between several parks in the area.

It will also provide a pedestrian route from the existing traffic signal at Main Street (SR63) and Clemens Road, which will allow pedestrians to safely navigate Main Street (SR63) and access other areas in the township, including various retail, office, and dining establishments.

“Congratulations again to Lower Salford Township on being the recipient of this much deserved funding,” Mensch said. “I was happy to support this effort from the beginning and look forward to the improvements that are to be made.”
