Clarion/Little Toby Rail-with-Trail Feasibility Study, 2005
The 18-mile Clarion/Little Toby Rail-with-Trail runs from Elk County, PA to Jefferson County, PA. Problems have arisen with a 1.8-mile stretch of the trail running adjacent to an active railway, so this feasibility study was written by Alta Planning + Design with the intent of relocating this stretch of trail. Through analysis of existing conditions, stakeholder concerns, and documents related to the trail, a list of alternatives is determined. These alternatives include renovating the trail with increased fencing, signage and warning systems, enhancing legal protection, diverting the trail, re-aligning the trail, buying the rail line, closing the 1.8-mile segment altogether, or making no changes whatsoever.
