Join us as the Lehigh Valley Chapter of the Sierra Club in partnership with the South Side Initiative explore the prospect of creating a biking and pedestrian bridge across the Lehigh River between Bethlehem’s North and South Sides. The program will feature a professional assessment of the options and challenges involved in the construction of such a bridge. The introductory discussion will also include a general overview of the benefits of urban pedestrian bridges and a perspective on a the bridge from representatives of the City of Bethlehem, Northampton County and the Delaware and Lehigh National Heritage Corridor.
Our educational program will support a public discussion of the community needs and benefits the bridge might offer. As a format for citizen input into the concept of a biking and pedestrian bridge, the program will record public commentary and conduct a written survey as a resource for future grant writing and a feasibility study.
