Marietta council rejects try for Front Street funding despite traffic increase from Northwest Lancaster County River Trail

In a surprising 4-2 vote, Marietta council voted against pursuing funds for infrastructure and streetscape improvements along historic Front Street.

Marietta has not yet completed its portion of the Northwest Lancaster County River Trail, which stretches 14 miles and five municipalities from Columbia to Falmouth.

"Two Sundays ago, 60 bicycles were on Front Street,'' said Councillor Sharon Renninger.

She said Front Street is seeing an increase of vehicle traffic associated with trail use, and that use is expected to increase.
