Hamilton Street Bridge project construction rescheduled

ALLENTOWN, Pa. - Construction expected to begin this week for the Route 222 bridge has been pushed back an additional week. 

The bridge, which spans Cedar Creek in Allentown, is one of over 550 bridges being replaced under the Rapid Bridge Replacement Project, which is a public-private partnership between PennDOT and Plenary Walsh Keystone Partners. 

During construction, one-lane traffic will be maintained north and south through the work zone. Access for local businesses on Hamilton Street, however, will be available during construction.

Motorists can access their businesses southbound via a short detour along South 21st Street to Reading Road and Yocco Drive. To visit businesses north of the bridge, follow the detour along North Saint Elmo Street and West Linden and North 20th Street.
