Schantz Rd detour begins

UPPER MACUNGIE TWP., Pa. - Drivers who use the Schantz Road Bridge in Lehigh County will have to find an alternate route for awhile.

PennDOT has begun construction on a project to replace the bridge in Upper Macungie Township.

The project also includes removing an S-curve near Adams Road and replacing it with a straight section of road.

Officials say Schantz Road will be closed between Adams Road and Twin Pond Road.

The project is expected to last until July of 2015.
