We should invest in connecting Stockertown and Palmer Township bike paths | Letter

Having just read the article about the $1.65 million allotted to extend the bike trail from Bristol to Allentown to Mountain Top, I would like to suggest that it would be nice if a little bit of the money could be used to connect the Stockertown rails-to-trails path directly to the Palmer Township bike path.

Or if that is not feasible, possibly consider building a bike and walking bridge on Bushkill Street so that it connects the Stockertown rail to trail path up Bushkill to Tatamy Road, then Eighth Street. This would be a much safer route than trying to go from Sullivan Trail down Uhler Road to get to the Palmer bike path.
