WHITEHALL TWP., Pa. -

Motorists traveling through a busy Lehigh County area will have to change course while a road is under construction.

Whitehall Township said that effective Wednesday until further notice, Center Street, a township-owned street, will be closed from Rt. 145/MacArthur Road to Ruch Street for road reconstruction.

Motorists should seek alternate routes such as Columbia, Chestnut (Whitehall) and Lehigh streets.

Reconstruction will include milling away the former surface and repaving the entire street.

In addition, repair will be made on the Coplay Creek Bridge.
