Delaware & Lehigh - Weissport Construction will Hibernate for the Winter

If you missed the local news, you might be wondering what is going on with the Weissport trail project. As noted previously, 2.7 miles of new trail surface are down and open between the trailhead and the railroad trestle and significant work is underway on the parking lot and the banks of the canal.The new trail surface runs for 2.7 miles north of WeissportStone work, complete with fishermen access steps, replaces the earthen canal banks

Unfortunately, construction work on the trailhead will not be completed prior to the onset of winter. The contractor will stabilize all excavations, building, and resurfacing projects and the site will remain dormant until the spring, when work will resume in earnest. We hope that you will bear with us during this ongoing project. The work done so far looks great, and the final product will be well worth the wait.D&L Vice President Elissa Thorne provides the local TV station with a construction update

During this lull in the action, the trail will be open to use, but we ask that all visitors use caution and good judgment when accessing the trail and navigating through the construction site. If you have questions regarding the status of the project or access to the Weissport section of trail, please contact D&L Trail Steward Scott Everett by phone at 610-923-3548 or by email at [email protected].
