Lehigh Valley Sierra Club Hosting a "Bridge Party" in Bethlehem

For the past year the Lehigh Valley Sierra Club, in cooperation with Lehigh University's Southside Initiative, has hosted a series of community discussions on the concept of a new pedestrian and bicycle bridge over the Lehigh River in Bethlehem.

On Saturday, June 24, 2017, from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m., the Lehigh Valley Sierra Club will host a public "bridge party" at the Charles Brown Ice House on Sand Island, 56 River Street, Bethlehem. Admission is free and there will be snacks, beverages, and live music.

Folks attending are urged to "bring something you plan to have fun with on the bridge", such as your bicycle, a fishing rod, your child's stroller, a musical instrument, binoculars for bird-watching, your favorite book ...

The party is a celebration of the community's work toward a feasibility study of a bridge. A presentation of the final report on the year-long community meetings and a community discussion ow "what's next for our bridge" will highlight the gathering.

"A pedestrian/bicycle bridge in Bethlehem over the Lehigh River will have significant benefits for the Bethlehem community," said Doug Roysdon, a host of the meetings, "including increased opportunity for outdoor activity, an attractive space to walk and bicycle that is buffered from dangerous traffic and air pollution, a safe route across the river for nearby schools, stores, restaurants, hotels, and cultural venues, and gathering spaces incorporated into the bridge design for entertainment, learning, and social connections."
