Construction began in April 2022 to formalize approximately 0.6 miles of D&L Trail. The new trail will span from Hanover Canal Park (MM 78.6) to the Deily Coal Yard Trailhead (MM 80.2) in Lehigh County.
This section of trail is owned and managed by Lehigh County. The County is leading the construction project with funding support from PennDOT. Work includes replacing the bridge at the Deily Coal Yard trailhead near Race Street. It also includes widening and resurfacing of the trail from Race Street to Hanover Canal Park.
Some fun facts about the project:
This section of trail is closed during construction. While we are all excited to see the construction progress, please avoid this section. We want to limit construction disturbances, prevent delays, and maintain safety.
The anticipated open date for this section is in Winter 2022.

The Delaware Canal region was one of the most heavily damaged sections of the D&L Trail after Tropical Storm Ida. Caution advisements remain between the Forks of the Delaware and the Virginia Forrest Recreation Area trailheads. Closures at MM 43 and MM 31.1 remain closed to trail users.
