Project Profile

Shocks Mill Walkway

Location: Marietta, PA 17547

Project Summary

DM/A has provided design and permitting services for the walkway project under Shocks Mill Bridge. The 330’ long, 6’ high walkway represents a critical component of the Northwest Lancaster County River Trail (NWLCRT), connecting the sections between Bainbridge and East Donegal Township. Previously, these two sections of trail abruptly ended at an impasse, with no way around Shock’s Mill Bridge. Now pedestrians and cyclists can enjoy the trail continuously from Decatur Street in Marietta to the riverfront park in Bainbridge, a distance of 6.5 miles.

Stephen Mohr, Conoy Township Supervisor, says that the completion of walkway “addresses a major missing link of the NWLCRT.” He reflects that his family had a vision for a river trail over three decades ago. “It took many players, much time and hard work to bring it to fruition,” says Mohr, “and if it weren’t for all the folks at LCSWMA we would still be waiting. But now, it’s something for all to enjoy.”
