Shippensburg University’s Council of Trustees received an update at its March 30 meeting regarding the completion of the Cumberland Valley Rail Trail in Shippensburg. Tim Ebersole, executive director of SU’s Office of Alumni Affairs and Government Relations; Jim Smedley, a representative from Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s Bureau of Municipal Services; and Garrett Stahlman, vice president of the Cumberland Valley Rails-to-Trails Council (CVRTC), spoke to trustees, explaining the final step in completing Shippensburg’s end of the trail into the downtown area. PennDOT and CVRTC have received $800,000 in federal funding to complete the project by June 2013, Ebersole said.
