Bridge Over Preston Lane, Upper Saucon Township
Clearing work has begun on the railbed in the area of the Preston Lane gap. The nature of the work includes removing the berms at the Saucon Rail Trail / Upper Saucon Township Community Park trail intersections, brush removal along the unused railbed, and drilling test borings along the railbed. All of this work is in preparation for the potential bridge over Preston Lane.
