Pedestrian and Bicycle Pathways

The Borough is pursuing a Bike Friendly Community designation and has created a Bike Advisory Task Force to assist in this effort.

The pedestrian and bicycle pathway network in Elizabethtown Borough is a phased planning, design and construction project reflective of the Borough's Official Map for Trails adopted in 2010 as part of the Regional Strategic Plan.

Phases I and II in the western corridor of the Borough are constructed and open for public use.  Points of interest on this corridor include the Elizabethtown Train Station, Poplar Street Park, the Elizabethtown Public Library, and downtown Elizabethtown.

A contract was awarded for Phases III and IV in the eastern corridor of the Borough with construction expected to be completed by the end of 2017.  Points of interest on this corridor include downtown Elizabethtown, Community Park, Elizabethtown College, and the Elizabethtown Area School District campus.

Phase V is designed in partnership with Mount Joy Township to connect Elizabethtown Borough through Mount Joy Township to the popular Conewago Rail Trail.  Applications for funding the construction of this connection are pending.

The Borough has applied for and received grant funding of a variety of sources, including federal, state, and county funds, to complete all the phases to date.
