Summary: 4 Guiding Principles
1. A Catalyst for Vitality
Form a welcoming gateway that harnesses the city’s hotels, restaurants, historic sites, artistic and musical venues, and recreational assets to boost economic vitality citywide.

2. Sustainable + Resilient
Demonstrate and inspire a more sustainable lifestyle by fostering a walkable city, integrating renewable sources of materials and energy into the bridge, and strengthening connections between people and nature.

3. A Cultural Canvas
The connection should be a destination that is both iconic and distinctly Bethlehem, reflecting the city’s history and artistic culture, and designed as a canvas to support programs and events from one side to the other.

4. Safe + Well-Connected
Create a connection across the Lehigh River between the North and South sides that safely accommodates a full range of users (cyclists, scooters, wheelchairs, pedestrians), filling in a vital link in the regional trail network and connecting multiple points of interest in the city.
