At the dedication of the Duquesne Tunnel yesterday some significant additional steps were announced to close the gaps in the GAP. From the Pittsburgh Post Gazette;
"Allegheny County Executive Dan Onorato also announced an agreement with Norfolk Southern Railway that will clear the way for completion of another 2.5 miles by next summer, from Duquesne to the Waterfront shopping complex.
That will leave one incomplete section, less than a mile, through Sandcastle Waterpark. Years of negotiations with the park's owners have failed to produce an agreement, but Mr. Onorato's spokesman, Kevin Evanto, said yesterday that "both sides are optimistic that we are going to be able to reach an agreement to get the trail through."
"We're almost there," Mr. Onorato said, "and we'll continue working hard to get it done."Complete story.
