Grand Opening of Phase 3 - Saturday, September 30, 2017

The Westmoreland Heritage Trail Chapter celebrated the Grand Opening of 5.9 miles from Murrysville to Trafford on Saturday, September 30, 2017. A Progressive Grand Opening Ceremony and Ribbon Cutting started at Roberts Access in Murrysville, continued to Saunders Station Access in Monroeville, and finished up at BY Park in Trafford.
