Murray’s Scenic Overlook on Grandview Road

Location: Oil City, Pennsylvania Client: Oil Region Alliance

JMT provided construction inspection services for a local enhancement project.

Murray's Scenic View Overlook on Grandview Road, previously known as Stewart's Overlook, is a popular observation location due to the spectacular view it affords of several miles of Oil Creek Valley upstream.

JMT completed construction inspection services for this total enhancement project, which included upgrading parking, safety improvements, and permitting free public access. JMT's primary responsibilities included inspection of a new ADA-compliant parking area,  a 270' crushed limestone pathway, split rail fence along the edge of the hillside, interpretive panels focusing on the Oil Creek Valley, benches, litter receptacles and landscaping.

This project was funded with Federal Transportation Enhancement funds via the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation, District 1-0 and a Community Conservation Partnership Program grant via the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR).
