Lower Salford Wins Main Street Sidewalk State Grant

LOWER SALFORD PA – A $130,000 grant for Lower Salford Township has been awarded this month under the Pennsylvania Greenways, Trails, and Recreation Program to help it install new concrete sidewalks and curb ramps along Main Street within Harleysville. This project is considered a township priority to enhance pedestrian safety.

The grant, overseen by the state Department of Community and Economic Development, was announced by 24th Legislative District Sen. Bob Mensch. He called the funding “much deserved.”

The Main Street walking route is a key connection from the existing traffic signal at Main Street and Clemens Road, according to township information. It can enhance visitor travel between several area parks, and also offer access to other portions of the township that include retail businesses, offices, and restaurants.
