Published On: Aug 10 2011 10:55:02 PM EDT

-The City’s Streets Bureau will be conducting patching on Macada Road Wednesday, March 25, and will need to close the road between 9am and 2pm.  They will begin in the portion between Center Street and Artemis Dr and then move between Artemis Dr and Barnesdale Rd.

-The contractor for the SR 412 project will be setting up barriers and other construction materials Wednesday, March 25, from 11am-3pm and then continuing from 7pm-7am at the intersection with Shimersville Rd.  Lane restrictions as well as temporary stoppages controlled by flaggers will occur.


-PPL will have crews on SR412 and Shimersville Rd on the following dates and will need to temporarily close SR412 occasionally between Emery St and Shimersville Rd for up to 15 minutes between 6am and 6pm for work on transmission lines:
    March 7
    March 12-13
    March 26-28
In addition, the following dates will potentially have lane closures in the same area:
    March 21-22
    March 24-25
Please be prepared for these occasional stops and plan to use alternate routes, if possible, on these days.

-UGI will be working on Main Street for a main replacement beginning Tuesday, March 17, between Ohio Rd and Church St.  They will need to shift traffic and close a lane at times.  Two-way traffic will be maintained.  They will then be working on Church Street between Main St and New St and will need to close a lane for this work.  Together, the work is expected to last 3-4 weeks (Apr 15).

-UGI will be replacing a gas main on Catasauqua Road between Kelchner Rd and Woodmont Dr. beginning March 10 and will need to have a lane closed between 8:30am – 3pm Mon-Fri.  This project is expected to take up to 2 months (May 10).  Flaggers will be onsite to direct traffic.

-The City’s sidewalk repair job on Main St is expected to start on Tuesday, March 17, near the intersection with Church Street.  This work will continue through June moving north on Main St on the east side to Broad Street and then south on Main St along the west side.  There will be times when a travel lane will need to be closed as electrical conduit is installed.  Two-way traffic will be maintained, but be aware of potential delays throughout the project.

-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.
