Attention Cyclists and Walkers:
Please obey all traffic signs when crossing roadways. Stop signs are not optional, and bicyclists must obey all signals on the Trail.
According to state law, while motorists must yield to cyclists or pedestrians who are already in the crosswalk, those cyclists and pedestrians are required to yield the right-of-way “to all intersecting traffic that may be close enough to constitute a hazard during the time when you are moving across or within the intersection or junction of roadways.”
The Municipality of Murrysville will be issuing citations to bicyclists not stopping at stop signs; please exercise caution when crossing all roadway intersections along the Trail.
Just a note: if you are using the WHT from Murrysville to Trafford, please park in designated trail parking areas (Roberts Trail Access/Duff Park in Murrysville, Saunders Station Area in Monroeville, and BY Park in Trafford). DO NOT PARK in parking lots owned by private businesses. Thank you for your cooperation!
