The eagerly-awaited "Phase Two" extension of the Saucon Rail Trail in Upper Saucon Township is expected to open in mid-late June, engineer Dennis Harman reported to township supervisors at their May 13 meeting.
Phase Two of the trail's construction will extend it by more than a mile—south through Center Valley, to the township's border with Coopersburg.
The trail's current southern terminus is Upper Saucon Township Community Park, while its northern terminus is in Hellertown.
Harman said paving was taking place the week of May 13, with fencing and signage work scheduled to begin the following week.
Phase One of the trail—which also passes through Lower Saucon Township—was opened two years ago.
