The newest section of the Shoreline Trail opened Monday at Lackawanna’s former Bethlehem Steel site.
The trail runs from the City of Buffalo to Dona Street in Lackawanna.
City officials gathered at the site on Monday to announce the opening of the trail and the next phases in the continuing project.
Organizers say the project is a symbol of what’s to come for the area after Bethlehem Steel closed in 1982.
Thirty trees, benches, Shoreline Trail signs, and more will be added to cap off Phase 1 of the project.
The Shoreline Trail will be extended to reach Woodlawn Beach State Park in the Town of Hamburg in the next phase.
