The Environmental Engineering firm WSP has been contracted to prepare a study to determine how to get the Blueberry Run Trail (BBR) from it's existing condition to a position where we can say, with confidence, that it meets or exceeds Standards for Rails-to-Trails trails. An "Existing Conditions Memo" has been completed which lays out the current conditions of the trail and provides some direction on our next steps.

This memo (with certain propriety and financial exclusions) is available for public viewing here:
