The D&L Trail will be getting a new pedestrian connecting bridge just South of Jim Thorpe Borough. The bridge will be at the South end of an approximate 1/2 mile trail gap and will connect with the rest of the trail for pedestrian and cyclists will be able to use. This will connect the Northern end of the D&L Heritage Trail to the Lehigh Gorge corridor of the trail. The bridge is expected to be completed in 2018.
There are multiple site plans listed in the PDF document below and a complete detailed final proposal.
