Ground has been broken on a new facility in Bethlehem that will create dozens of jobs.

The Curtiss-Wright national-class manufacturing and warehouse facility will be built on Feather Way in the Lehigh Valley Industrial Park.

Developers said the 179,000 square-foot facility will create at least 95 full-time jobs within three years.

The aerospace company was founded 80 years ago by Glenn Curtiss and the Wright Brothers. The company has other locations in New Jersey.
