A section of the York County Heritage Rail Trail is closed through early spring.

The affected section, from Hanover Junction north to York City, is being repaired because of damage caused by Tropical Storm Lee in 2011.

The trail is expected to reopen to horses in early spring. The downtime will allow for new material on the trail to knit with the older surface.
