Beam for 15th St. bridge repair

ALLENTOWN, Pa. -

The last of 14 beams being used to reconstruct the 15th Street bridge and the Ward Street bridge in Allentown was put in place Friday.

Each of the 160-foot long support beams was delivered to the site throughout the week, but rainy weather delayed the progress.

The bridge replacement project began with preparation for demolition last August. Work should be wrapped up by the end of this year.
