A trail project which will connect Lorenwood Drive in Hermitage to the nearby athletics complex has received $350,000 from PennDOT's Multimodal Transportation Fund, according to a release from Pennsylvania State Rep. Parke Wentling (R-Mercer).

“Rather than getting in the car, this trail will enable those living on Lorenwood Drive to walk, run or ride their bikes over to the Athletic Complex,” Wentling said. “As chair of the House Cycling and Trails Caucus, this is the exact type of improvement I’d love to see across the Commonwealth.”

The Multimodal Transportation Fund was created by PennDOT to promote walking, biking, and non-car transit solutions across Pennsylvania. 

It is currently unclear when work on the project in Hermitage will begin.
