Ohio River Greenway Trail Phase 1

Ohio River Greenway/Bikeway Trail Phase 1

The project is the development of an on-road and off-road trail system for pedestrians and bicycles along State Route (SR) 51. The project will extend between Ferree Street in Coraopolis to the Sewickley Bridge. This is Phase 1 of the Ohio River Greenway Trail.

The Ohio River Trail is an important connection between the states of Pennsylvania and Ohio. This trail system will connect the Montour Trail System and link to the Great Allegheny Passage Trail, communities westward all along the Ohio River in PA, and tie into the trail systems in Ohio.

Phase 1 route will use SR 51- 4th Avenue and 5th Avenue corridors in Coraopolis (they are 1-way streets and designated PA Bicycle Route A) to make the on-road connection. 

The route becomes a separated trail between the signalized intersections of Thorn Run and Ambulance Way and enters back into the State ROW, using the SR51 roadway shoulder between Ambulance Way and the Sewickley Bridge.

Phase 1 Scope of Work

The study corridor map is shown below:
