On Friday, October 6, the Lawrence Hopewell Trail Corporation (LHT), cut the ribbon on the Kings Highway segment of the Trail. Named that because this trail segment crosses the historic Kings Highway, otherwise known as US 206.
Like other recently built LHT segments, the trail features porous asphalt and other green streets infrastructure to reduce water runoff.
It is mainly a side path adjacent to Province Line Road which was the colonial border between East and West Jersey. It connects one of the few remaining gaps in the trail.
The trail is now 88 percent complete and the new segment connects directly to NJ TRANSIT bus route 606 at Province Line Rd and Route 206.
LHT has done many ribbon cuttings and they do a great job providing delicious refreshments and getting public officials attend. Lawrence Hopewell Trail decorated cupcakes along with apple cider and apple cider donuts from Terhune Orchards.
Speakers included Lawrence Township Mayor David Maffei, Board Trustees Becky Taylor and Eleanor Horne and Chris Linn from DVRPC and Community Relations.
