In 2016 and 2017 Lansdowne Borough in Delaware County was awarded two grants that will support the development of a pedestrian trail as an extension of the Hoffman Park trail. The new trail extension known as Gateway Slope will connect to the existing trail at the South East corner of Scottdale and Baltimore Avenue with Eldon Road at Baltimore Avenue. The project will allow for disbandment of the existing sidewalk that is inadequate and dangerously close to Baltimore Avenue traffic. The two awards total $600,000 one from the PA Department of Conservation and Natural Resources Community Conservation Partnership Program C2P2 in the amount of $300,000 and another from the Commonwealth Financing Authority Multimodal Transportation Fund in the amount of $300,000 awarded. Construction will begin in the Spring of 2021 and will be completed by June of 2022.
