October 19… EXACTLY two weeks before the election.

Like him or not, Onorato is a good politician…

It’s about time. If Sandcastle hadn’t objected, this section of trail could have opened a couple of years ago, for Pittsburgh’s 250th, as it was supposed to. Stupid of Sandcastle & Kennywood to fail to see that the GAP will boost their publicity and their business.

In the meantime, if you’re looking for a route through or around Sandcastle on bicycle, check this map: http://goo.gl/maps/RezW

Sandcastle/Kennywood had different owners a couple years ago.That’s why the trail never went through.Now that there’s a new owner they’re less restrictive and that’s the reason why a trail can now finally go past their establishment.Thank God a new owner took over Kennywood/Sandcastle!!

I now know who to vote for in the election.

WOO!

I can’t wait to hear the announcement on tuseday. Dan Onorato knows how to get a few more votes.

Trail’s finishing touch on horizon, in the P-G, says the deal with Sandcastle was done in July, and negotiating with CSX took the rest of this time. Glad nobody marched on Sandcastle then. :-)

Should be a great new segment. I think we need a countdown clock though. 390 days to go….

Just another instance of spineless politicians caving in to family-havin’, bike-ridin’, anti-planet-destroyin’ hipsters.

Oops, sorry, wrong thread.

Sweetness. My preeminent vision for this section of the trail is a platoon of enterprising homeowners trekking back and forth, trailering sheets of drywall and plywood on the evenings and weekends.

It may have helped if they’d, you know, announced that… or at least let it leak out.

Anyways, great news – I wonder if there’s any chance they’ll get everything done before 11/11/11. I’m thinking of riding the GAP next summer.

Are you guys aware that Dan Onorato is making some announcement about the Gap Trail on Tuesday? I can try to get details to share. My guess is that this is the same info that is in the PG artcle above. But happy news.
