CVRT Improvements

Starting the week of November 22nd or 29th, a contractor for the Cumberland Valley Rail-Trail Council will be regrading, widening and resurfacing 6 miles of the CVRT’s stone bed to a width of 10 feet. Brush on either side of the trail will also be cut back. These improvements will begin at Shippensburg Township Park and end at the Oakville Road crossing.

The contractor will complete one section of the trail before moving on to the next section. The trail will remain open and signage will be placed alerting users of the sections under construction. Users may need to access the equestrian trail to maneuver around the construction and should exercise caution while doing so. Daily construction will end by 4 p.m. with no work performed on weekends.

Final paving of trail sections at the road crossings should happen in the spring of 2022.

High Visibility Reflective Address Sign – $10

If you called 911, could emergency personnel
find
your home or business quickly?

In an emergency, locating the address as soon as possible is the first step in saving lives and property. Time wasted searching for the proper address is something many 911-callers can’t afford. Proper marking of a home street address is the responsibility of the homeowner, but we, along with our emergency service partners, know that many homes within North Newton Township do not have their address clearly marked.

Your purchase of a Reflective Address Sign will greatly improve the ability of all emergency service providers to quickly and accurately locate those that need help anytime, day or night.

To order a sign for your home or business,
please call the township office at (717) 776-7665.

Only $10
