Good afternoon residents:

The day is finally here! Construction of the Newtown Rail Trail within Upper Southampton Township, between County Line Road and Bristol Road, will begin on Monday, July 6, 2020. Please bear in mind that this date may change due to weather and/or other circumstances. However, this is the date that the contractor has indicated that construction activities will begin.

At this time, we are waiting for additional construction schedule information and will share it with you as soon as we have it. The initial step in the construction process will be the removal of the railroad ties.

As a reminder, we ask that residents stay off the rail corridor during the construction process as there will be heavy equipment and trucks along the corridor during the process.

Please contact Rich Brahler or Paul Gordon at the Bucks County Planning Commission (215) 345-3400 with any questions.
