The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today three ramps originally scheduled to close tomorrow at the US 22 interchange with Fullerton Avenue in Whitehall Township, Lehigh County will now close Friday night. The delay is due to the rainy weather this week.
 
On Friday night, August 19, the US 22 east ramp to Fullerton Avenue will be closed and detoured. The posted detour will utilize PA 145/Seventh Street and Fairmont Avenue. This closure is expected to last until the end of May 2017. The Fullerton Avenue ramp to US 22 east will remain open.
 
Also Friday night, the US 22 west ramp to Fullerton Avenue and the Fullerton Avenue ramp to US 22 west will both be closed and detoured. The posted detour will utilize PA 145/MacArthur Road, Grape Street and Third Street. This closure is also expected to last until the end of May 2017.
 
Then on August 22 the two northbound lanes on Fullerton Avenue are scheduled to be shifted onto the newly built section of the Fullerton Avenue Bridge over US 22. Northbound Fullerton Avenue will remain restricted to two 11' wide lanes at the bridge over US 22, and southbound Fullerton Avenue will remain closed and detoured between Park Street and Pershing Street.
