Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission Providing $40,000 Towards Planning for PECO Miracle Nature Trail in Whitemarsh

On March 28, the Board of the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC) approved $3.67 million in grants for 22 mutli-use trail projects throughout Greater Philadelphia. This included $40,000 towards planning for the PECO Miracle Nature Trail in Whitemarsh Township.

Projects include design and construction, as well as feasibility studies, to complete gaps in and extend or connect to Circuit Trails. The projects will connect more people to jobs, shopping destinations, outdoor recreation, public transportation, and other neighborhoods.

“These trail projects continue our commitment to completing the vision of the Circuit, providing opportunities to travel throughout the region without a car which reduces congestion, improves air quality and contributes to a healthy lifestyle,” said Barry Seymour, DVRPC Executive Director.

Greater Philadelphia is building the Circuit Trails, an 800-plus mile network of multi-use trails spanning the metropolitan region. Currently, about 332 miles of this network are complete, 74 miles are in progress, and 408 miles are in some stage of planning.

We couldn’t find any information on the path of this trail. We will attempt to find out more next week.
