Easton project needs archaeological clearance

Before construction crews can get started on a Northampton County bus terminal archeologists will have to give the "all clear"!

Officials are planning to build an intermodal facility on South 3rd Street in Easton.

But before they can get started, the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Coalition will have to give the project archaeological clearance.

Officials say because of the site's close proximity to the Lehigh and Delaware Rivers there might be Native American artifacts buried beneath the earth.

There's no word on when the field work will get underway.
