Delaware & Lehigh - Work Begins on Weissport Flood Repairs

I am pleased to report that repairs are well underway on the Weissport section the D&L Trail that was damaged by the March Flooding. My thanks to the efforts of the Lehighton Water Authority in getting the trail passable.

Crews repair the trail surface in Weissport.

The repairs will occur over the next few months. The base has been repaired in the worst sections, where the water either blew out the towpath or eroded deep gouges in the path. I was able to ride my bike the entire length last week, but it is only passable using bikes with fat tires. The entire length is also suitable for walking with sturdy shoes. There remains an impassable section at the north end of the railroad trestle above Lock 4.
