New Bike Trail Expansion Slated for Construction near Pittsburgh Hotel Near Airport

Pittsburgh Airport Hotel is Within Walking Distance to Bike Trail

    /24-7PressRelease/ - PITTSBURGH, PA, July 12, 2008 - The Airport Marriott Hotel in Pittsburgh, PA is excited about the possibilities that will come with the expansion of a new bike trail from Washington, D.C. to the Pittsburgh International Airport.

Officials hope to open a link between the Montour Trail and the airport by late fall or early spring. The new bike trail will start at a five-way intersection near the trail's Enlow Tunnel and will follow portions of old Route 978 and Clinton Road to a former airport construction access road that runs directly into the terminal complex. The project has been in development since 1999, but planning was put on hold after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, because of security concerns. But now the project is back on and excitement is building around Pittsburgh in anticipation for the opening of the link.

At present, the Pittsburgh Airport Marriott is located at the start of the bike trail. Unlike other hotels in the area, this luxury Pittsburgh airport hotel offers convenient access to bicyclists looking to spend the night prior to embarking on the approximately 200 mile journey to D.C., so, come and ride the bike trail, and start your journey at the Pittsburgh Airport Marriott.
