Swatara Construction Will NOT Re-Route Trail

Pennsylvania's Lebanon Daily News of 27 January 2012 has a story by Andrea Gilhoolley titled "Construction at Swatara State Park under way" which outlines the start of state-funded work on parking lots, bridges and other infrastructure in the Park.
Mountain bike trails, Appalachian Trail and Waterville Bridge will remain open, as will a section of the rail-trail. The Swatara Creek Water Trail will require portage around the bridge construction.

Most of the park is located along Interstate 81 between Second and Blue mountains. An 8-mile stretch of the Swatara Creek Water Trail winds through the park, and two miles of the Appalachian Trail, which stretches from Georgia to Maine, cross its southern sector.
Remember that old iron bridge over the Swatara Creek?
