Closed Bridge Splits Laurel Highlands Trail

The bridge that the Laurel Highlands Trail used to cross the Pennsylvania Turnpike has been closed.  This action will cause changes to the Laurel Highlands run and will impact other recreational users of the hiking trail.  It is unclear how cash-strapped Pennsylvania authorities will find the money to fix this rusty hulk. Let's hope they do.  Petition to Save the Bridge | LHT Run | Press Release | Park Trail Page | Larger version of photo above
