The Lackawanna Heritage Valley National and State Heritage Area (LHV) will hold a Public Information Meeting about the Lackawanna River Heritage Trail Signage and Guidebook Project on Monday, May 6, 2013, beginning at 6 p.m. The meeting will be held in the meeting room at the Lackawanna Heritage Valley, 213 South 7th Avenue, Scranton, PA. The public is invited to attend this free event.
LHV is developing signage standards for the Lackawanna Greenway that will be installed along the Lackawanna River Heritage Trail (LRHT) and a trail guidebook for the Lackawanna River Heritage Trail and the Delaware and Hudson Rail Trail System.
The LRHT, in conjunction with the D&H Rail-Trail, is a seventy five-mile multi-purpose corridor that follows the Lackawanna River from the river’s confluence with the Susquehanna River at Duryea and Pittston north to the Delaware and Hudson right-of-way to the New York State Border. The signage system and guidebook will guide motorists, pedestrians, and bicyclists to various destinations in the Lackawanna Greenway and along the LRHT and Delaware & Hudson Rail Trail system, including tourist destinations, commercial areas, public facilities, parks, and cultural and historic facilities.
The event will begin at 6:00 p.m. with registration and time to review the displays. The presentation will start at 6:30 p.m. followed by time for Q&A.
