The Parks and Recreation department announce that construction on the Nor-Bath Trail will begin at Clear Springs Drive in the Borough of Northampton on Friday, April 2nd. Trail resurfacing and other work will continue towards the west with an anticipated completion date of April 9th.
The Nor-Bath Trail is the only County-owned trail within the network of over 300-miles of land and water trails throughout the County. The Nor-Bath Trail is part of THE LINK, an inter-connected trail system throughout the Lehigh Valley and directly connects to the D&L Trail and the September 11th National Memorial Trail.
Northampton County provided $300,000 towards rehabilitation of the Nor-Bath Trail to match a PA Department of Conservation & Natural Resources Community Conservation and Partnership Program, successfully awarded in 2018.
The engineering was completed by Maser Consulting and construction for Phase II was awarded to Grace Industries.
