Pavilion Gate at Gillentown Trailhead

Roy Brooks Welding installed the Pavilion Gate at Gillentown Trailhead yesterday, 10-15-15. Roy, Karen & Mike did a nice job installing gate post about a week ago and now the gate. The next warm day we will try to get it painted. The dogs enjoyed the day at Snow Shoe too.

Update on Kato Bridge Replacement Project: 10-15-15

George Haynes, Snow Shoe Township Supervisor is working closely with the contractor installing the bridge. Roy Brooks Welding spent some time there today welding galvanized bridge plates to the base. Things are progressing nicely.

Union Gas Line is also responsible for grading, rolling and stoning Kato Road. The roads are the best they have been for some time.

The Kato Bridge Replacement Project is underway.

Pictures taken Sunday, October 11, 2015 of bridge beams at site. The bridge is expected to be completed in two to three weeks.

The Snow Shoe Rails to Trails wants to thank The Snow Shoe Township Supervisors, Rodney Preslovich, John Yecina and George Haynes for their continued support of the trail and to move ahead with the bridge project. All three of them realize the positive economic impact the trail has on businesses of the area and the importance of this bridge.

We also want to thank all three Centre County Commissioners for their support and monies provided to the township towards this bridge replacement. Thank you Steve Dershem, Michael Pipe and Chris Excharos.

We want to thank all of the SSRT members for your patience during the gas line installation on the Kato Road. You patience has allowed them to complete the installation with minimal issues. Now, some of the monies from the gas line project will be devoted to the bridge replacement. Also, we would like to thank them for the nice job done grading and stoning the road in the section where the gas line was installed. Thank you Union Pipeline.
