Work to extend the Tredway Trail should begin in a few months.

Work on a 1.5-mile extension of the Tredway recreational trail in Allegheny Township is expected to start at the end of April and be completed in August.

PennDOT has awarded the $245,000 contract to A. Folino Construction, Inc., which submitted the lowest bid.

Folino is tasked with extending the trail, formally called the Wynn and Clara Tredway Trail, along the Allegheny River for about 1.5 miles to where the Freeport Bridge passes above it.

PennDOT spokeswoman Valerie Petersen said work is expected to begin by the end of April and be finished in August.

The work will include trail surfacing, paving a trail parking lot, landscaping, adding signs and painting a line to denote that the trail is designed for walking and bicycle riding.

Lane pavement markings and signage will be added to River Landing Road.

The project is funded by state Transportation Alternative Program (TAP) funds.

The land was previously used as a railroad line.

It’s being converted into what’s formally known as a multi-use greenway trail for pedestrianas and bicyclists, Peterson said.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
