The final feather in the countys cap will come May 5, with a celebration to mark the grand opening of the King of Trails Bridge, the pedestrian walkway that spans Elm Creek along South Washington Avenue. (The span already is open to the public, and has received plenty of use by walkers, cyclists and others venturing to the Lehigh Portland Trail complex south of Iola.
