Rail Trail's Phase 2 Expected to Open in Mid-Late June

Phase Two of the Saucon Rail Trail in Upper Saucon Township should be open to the public by early summer, the township's engineer told supervisors May 13.

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.

Spaeth's recent campaign literature said he would support completion of the Rail Trail if he were elected. Look! He got got it done 7 months before he takes office. It's nice to see the township is getting a well informed supervisor that is so effective he gets things done more than half a year before he takes office. And yes, it was a great idea. Thanks to Bill H., among others.
