WAYNESBORO, Pa. - The governments of Waynesbsoro and Washington Township are teaming up with State Sen. Terry Punt to build a 3,500-foot sidewalk connecting Waynesboro Mall with Wayne Heights Mall.
Washington Township Administrator Michael Christopher said Tuesday that the new walkway will run on the south side of Pa. 16 from the mall in the borough to Welty Road in the township.
It not only will connect the two malls, but will also run by the Waynesboro YMCA, the school district and Renfrew Museum and Park. The project also includes a 100-foot pedestrian bridge over Little Antietam Creek, Christopher said.
One old stone wall will have to be relocated during construction.
Washington Township will be the applicant for the project, but it will be sponsored by both governments, he said. Neither will have to pay any money toward the sidewalk, he said.
