The South New Street
Streetscape Enhancement Project

The South New Street Streetscape Enhancement Project envisions the improvement of pedestrian accessibility and safety, and embrace the cultural and institutional platform in South Bethlehem for public space utilization and economic sustainability. Incorporating heritage and Identity will provide a Gateway along South New Street between Lehigh University’s active pedestrian plaza, Farrington Square, and Fahy Bridge, a major north/south corridor in South Bethlehem that is continuing to grow a neighborhood and citywide destination.
