Lower Merion officials greenlighted an upcoming report on the expansion of the Cynwyd Heritage Trail network, as supporters of the trails look to add more routes that will connect the Main Line with areas in Fairmount Park.
Building the trail so it stretches past the Bala Cynwyd Regional Rail station and crosses into Philadelphia by traversing City Avenue are some of the expansion aims, according to Main Line Media News.
The proposed trail would run along the tracks from the Cynwyd station for about one-half mile, continue under the Union Avenue Bridge and then joining with Philadelphia midway under the City Avenue bridge between Conshohocken State Road and Bala Avenue.
