-A contractor for UGI will be working on West Third Street just west of Wyandotte Street Tuesday, December 16, and Wednesday, December 17 from 9am – 3:00pm.  During this time, traffic will be shifted and flaggers will be present to direct traffic.

-Columbia Street: The contractor at the Charter School site will be closing Columbia Street between Webster St and Polk St beginning Monday, October 27, and will have the road closed through January for construction of the building.  A detour will be in place utilizing 1st Street.  Due to the placement of a large crane and stone on the road, emergency vehicles will not have access through here; however, other accommodations have been made for fire and emergency access at Taylor Street.

-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.
