On Wednesday, November 14, at 5 PM there will be a public meeting and information session on the Lackawanna Avenue Connector Spur of the Lackawanna River Heritage Trail in Scranton. This section will connect the trail along 7th Avenue to Lackawanna Avenue and downtown Scranton.
Location: This event will take place at the Lackawanna Heritage Valley’s offices at 213 Railroad Avenue Scranton, PA 18505.
The Lackawanna Heritage Valley is developing this trail, to create a safe connection to the City of Scranton. Currently there is no safe link to the downtown from the LRHT and the Connector Project will help eliminate the problem.
The Lackawanna River Heritage Trail runs 40 miles along the Lackawanna River, beginning at the confluence with the Susquehanna in Pittston, joining the Delaware and Hudson (D&H) trail in Simpson, and continuing to Union Dale at the Stillwater Dam. From there, the trail extends north to the New York State border to complete the 70 mile trail system. The Heritage Trail is a wonderful community asset, used by thousands of people throughout the year for health and wellness, recreation, alternative transportation, access to the river and simple enjoyment of the area’s natural beauty.
The Mission of the Lackawanna Heritage Valley National and State Heritage Area is to facilitate community action in the preservation, promotion and development of the region’s history, cultural heritage and natural resources.
