Palmer Bike Path Clear of Hurricane Sandy Debris

Palmer Township Beautification Committee reports that bike path along Lehigh River now open after being closed for four months.

For four months, a section of Palmer Township's bike path had endured the wrath of Hurricane Sandy.

When Sandy hit in late October, major tree damage was caused along the Lehigh River. That section of the bike path was closed until all the trees were removed.

It's now open.

Dave Carr, who heads Palmer Township's beautification committee, has reported that it's now clear sailing -- or biking -- from Fairview Park to Riverview Park.

The storm swept through Palmer Township, causing major flooding and uprooting trees throughout the township.

Some people and businesses were without power for a week and some places like the Palmer Park Mall and Palmer Township's municipal building were without power for days.

The storm also prompted Palmer Township officials to postpone trick-or-treating from Halloween until the following weekend.
