The Greenbelt Association, in partnership with Dauphin County, is pleased to announce the completion of a traffic safety and engineering study which crafts a plan of safety improvements for the Greenbelt.

We want to thank all those who helped make this study possible and we hope to continue to work together to implement its recommendations.

Building a Better Greenbelt: Signs, Safety and a Riverfront Link to Fort Hunter (Executive Summary) provides both the preliminary engineering and a financing strategy for  a comprehensive  new sign system; safety improvements at seven intersections and on-road sections of the trail; and a new off-road 1.9 mile link trail to Fort Hunter Park.
