Conewago Trail Crossing @ Route 743 Public Review Period

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) invites the public to participate in online public information display regarding the Route 743 Conewago Trail Crossing. The objective of the information display is to identify treatment options at the Conewago Trail crossing of Route 743. Users of the Conewago Trail Crossing at Route 743 are encouraged to provide input on candidate treatment options at the crossing.

In accordance with Governor Wolf’s COVID-19 mitigation efforts, plans and information displays will be held online only. A digital version of the information will be available to view online through November 20, 2020. Information including a comment form, can be found by visiting the PennDOT District 8 website,, by clicking on Public Meetings listed under the Resources heading, and choosing the Lancaster County box then the tile marked PA 743 Conewago Trail Crossing Study. The purpose of the study is to introduce the project and receive public input regarding any questions or concerns.

The project documents can be made available in alternative languages or formats if requested. If you need translation/interpretation services or have special needs or have special concerns that require individual attention, contact Michelle Tarquino, PennDOT Project Manager, at or 717-783-5007.

For a safer parking choice when using the Conewago Trail, please visit Mount Joy Township’s newest community park, Old Trolley Line Park on Beverly Road.  There is trail head parking with a connection to the trail.  You will also find walking paths and ballfields at the park.  Next spring we will be installing playgrounds, pavilion, picnic tables and benches.
