"The goal of the project is to develop a walking path along the railroad tracks that would connect the former Lehigh Valley RR freight station with the downtown. The walking path could then be extended along the railroad tracks off of South Lehigh Avenue toward Athens Borough."
Over the past year several truckloads of clean fill have already been deposited along the tracks by local contractors and graded by borough employees.
