-The City’s Water Department will be continuing to repair trenches on SR378 (Wyandotte Street) Monday through Wednesday,August 25-27, between Broadway and 3rd Street. They will need to work between 9:00am – 3:00pm, weather dependent. During this time, two-way traffic will be maintained; however only with one lane in each direction. Backups and delays are expected due to the lane restrictions so please seek alternate routes, if possible.

-The City’s Streets Bureau will be repaving Walnut Street Wednesday, August 20, between Main Street and Guetter Street from 8am-2pm.  The road will need to be closed during some of this time.

-Beginning Monday, August 18, North Street will be closed in sections between New Street and Center Street for waterline replacement and milling and overlaying.  Although the road will be open at times for local traffic (in sections) the entire area will be closed to through traffic.  This restriction will be in place for a few weeks (September 5).

-The County will be replacing the bridge on Macada Rd over the Monocacy Creek and will need to close Macada Rd to through traffic between Center Street and Jacksonville Road beginning Monday, August 11.  Local residents will have access to their homes; however, vehicles will not be able to pass over the bridge.  The work is expected to last until approximately September 30, 2014.  A full detour will be posted which will consist of US22, as Bridle Path Rd has a weight restriction.

-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.
