The bridge is a ‘golden spike’ connection that will link all five counties of the D&L Trail. Groundbreaking is slated for summer 2016. When complete, the bridge will create 130 miles of continuous trail. All proceeds of Bike for the Bridge will benefit the completion of the D&L Trail and the pedestrian bridge in downtown Jim Thorpe.
