New Railroad Walkway Proposed Would Reduce Hazard For Pedestrians
GREENSBURG, Pa. —
GREENSBURG, Pa. – The Westmoreland Cultural Trust hosted a Monday afternoon press conference to discuss the proposed underground walkway connecting the E-Halt train station off of Seton Hill Drive to the cultural district of downtown Greensburg.
Trust president Michael J. Langer said that its representatives have been talking with the station about building a walkway under the railroad tracks for more than a year.
Greensburg Mayor Karl Eisamon said, “It (the walkway) would create a greater flow of university students to walk into the cultural district.”
As it stands now, students who attend Seton Hill University and those who park in the new city lot on Seton Hill Drive must cross over the tracks to reach the downtown area.
