Lehigh/Northampton Co - Bethlehem Street Closures

Published On: Aug 10 2011 09:55:02 PM CDT

-The City’s Electrical Bureau will be performing maintenance operations on the street lights along SR 378 between the Hill to Hill Bridge and US 22 from Thursday through Saturday, July 24-26, and again next Monday, July 28. Crews will start southbound on SR378 on Thursday at US22 and work their way south, then return northbound.  During the hours of 9am-3pm, Thursday-Monday, expect lane closures associated with this work. Please use caution through the work area.

-PennDOT will begin the installation of a high tension cable median barrier on SR378 between US22 and the Hill to Hill Bridge on Monday, March 24, 2014.  The project is expected to last until July with lane closures expected to begin March 31, from 9am-3pm, Monday-Friday.

-PennDOT’s SR412 contractor will be altering the traffic patterns at the I-78 ramps beginning Wednesday, May 28 at 9am.  At this time, the I-78 westbound off-ramp will be restricted to one lane to the intersection with SR412 in order for final restorations on the ramp to occur.  This change will necessitate police control of the signals during the hours of 6:30am-9:00am and 3:00pm-6:00pm.  However, please be prepared for possible delays throughout this entire area due to the increased congestion.  This pattern is expected to remain until July 28, 2014.

-Due to recent inspection results, the High Street Bridge to Hellertown will be closed immediately. Please be aware that due to the prior closing of the Seidersville Road bridge by Northampton County, there will no longer be thru traffic from Ravena Street or High Street. Signs, barricades, etc. have been installed to warn traffic of the closure. The City has been actively pursuing replacement of the High Street Bridge; however, until the replacement, alternate routes shall be taken.
