Illicks Mill Road in Bethlehem will be closed for two hours Saturday morning, warns Tiffany Geklinsky, the city's traffic coordinator.


The road will be closed  8 a.m. to 10 a.m. Saturday between Center Street and Monocacy Park, because Asplundh Tree Service will be removing a large tree, according to Geklinsky.

She said drivers also should be cautious when traveling on Shimersville Road next week.  Lanes may be restricted between 9 a.m. and 3  p.m. Monday through Thursday, because brush-cutting crews will be working along that road between Route 412 and Main Street.

Geklinsky said crews also will be working 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Friday on Center Street between Bierys Bridge Road and Johnston Drive. Flaggers also will be restricting Center Street traffic during that wok.
