The City of Lebanon and FNRT have finished putting up railings on the bridge just west of the tunnel under Hanover Street. It looks great!
The current phase of the project, which should be completed in 2014, includes development and completion of the path through the downtown tunnel near Lebanon College, as well as the construction of the path over the four bridges between the intersection of Mascoma Street and Mechanic Street in Lebanon and Glen Road in West Lebanon.
“When Phase 1 is completed, we will have a functional trail with a dirt path that is navigable from the center of town to Glen Road by walkers, hikers, runners, mountain bikers, cross-country skiers and snowshoers,” said Paul Coats, director of the Lebanon Recreation & Parks Department
