FREEMANSBURG, Pa. -

A Northampton County bridge that unexpectedly closed last week has reopened.

PennDOT says major repairs to the Freemansburg Avenue Bridge in Freemansburg borough have been completed.

Officials closed the bridge last Friday.

They say the ground underneath an abutment was washing away.

The bridge spans Nancy Run.

PennDOT says crews are still working on other minor repairs.

They're asking drivers to be careful and watch for slow-moving construction vehicles in this area for the next two weeks.
