Closure for Gas Line Replacement Beginning July 8; Shuttle Available

Closure Between Mile Markers 92 and 94.5

GAP Mile 92 | Reported on | Last Updated:

A 2.5-mile segment of the Great Allegheny Passage will be closed for a major underground pipeline replacement, from July 8 to mid-October. The segment is between mile markers 92 and 94.5. An exact end date will be determined by the speed of the project and will be posted here. A shuttle service for travelers and their bicycles will be provided by the Regional Trail Corporation during daylight hours between the hamlet of Adelaide (near Riveredge Road) and the parking lot near Dawson. Details on how to arrange a shuttle will be posted here as they become available.

The closure is required because Texas Eastern Transmission, operator of a 8,580-mile network of 30″ pipes sending natural gas from the Gulf of Mexico through 11 states to New York City, will be replacing a section of its pipe infrastructure underneath the Great Allegheny Passage and Youghiogheny River.
