Mon-Whorf Trail : Work To Be Done

In a previous post I discussed the impending logistics of connecting the Point with the Eliza Furnace Trail (aka The Jail Trail). This connection represents the "last mile" of bike trail connecting Pittsburgh to Washington DC, a distance of 335 miles. This is an artist's depiction of what the connection will look like:




This represents the current status of the Mon-Whorf Trail:




What this last mile of trail needs are two these items:
   
A floating barge connection from Point State Park, out into the river and around the pilings, then back on shore at the Whorf Trail.A switchback ramp from the Smithfield street bridge down to the Mon-Whorf trail and parking lot.
