Visitors center and walking trails planned in Lower Mount Bethel

Two years ago the Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission gave Lower Mount Bethel $1.2 million and PPL donated 9 acres near Riverton to the township.

Those two actions provided the foundation for the township to create a visitors center, a park-and-ride lot and the first part of two pedestrian trails between Riverton and Martins Creek.

John Mauser, the township's grant administrator and a member of the Environmental Advisory Committee, said the project should become a reality within the next 20 months.

Work on the trail will begin this fall and is expected to be finished by the end of late summer 2008.
