An amendment to the agreement with the engineering group working on the River Walk extension has been approved by Lycoming County Commissioners, giving the consultants an additional year to work on their part of the project.
The extended timeline allows more time to complete the design coordination and engineering work required for the project plan, according to Jenny Picciano, community development/chief planner with the county’s Department of Planning and Community Development.
When complete, the River Walk Extension will stretch from its current endpoint at Maynard Street through Susquehanna State Park terminating at Reach Road.
The extension of the agreement does not involve any additional cost for the county.
