Delaware & Lehigh - Lehigh County Capital Plan Includes D&L

On Tuesday, Lehigh County Executive Don Cunningham released a new five-year capital plan that calls for $75.4 million in spending from 2009-2013. Of special note to friends of the D&L, the county has allotted $245,000 for the development of the D&L Trail and $50,000 for the construction of a boat launch at Lehigh Gap Nature Center.  The boat launch is part of an ongoing construction project, intended to improve the trailhead at the Center and ease river and trail access to the Lehigh Gap. Cunningham’s plan also includes millions of dollars for agricultural conservation easements and park improvements.
