Municipality: City of Allentown
ROAD NAME: Eighth Street/Albertus L. Meyers Bridge
BETWEEN: Union Street AND Lehigh Street
Type of Work: Bridge Repair
RESTRICTION: Northbound bridge traffic will be closed and detoured on Monday 09/15 and Thursday 9/18 to allow cement trucks to deliver cement for portions of the new deck. Northbound tarffic will be detoured on St. John Street, South Sixth Street, West Wyoming Street, South Fifth Street, Auburn Street, Lehigh Street, Union Street, South Sixth Street and Linden Street. Access will be maintained for pedestrians and emergency vehicles.
A project began in May to rehabilitate the Eighth Street/Albertus L. Meyers Bridge that traverses the Little Lehigh Creek, Norfolk Southern Rail Road, Harrison Street, Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard and Fountain Park.
For the duration of the project the southbound travel lane on the bridge is closed and detoured. The posted detour for southbound traffic uses Union and Lehigh streets. To accommodate the detour, the City of Allentown has temporarily implemented a two-way traffic pattern on Union Street between Seventh and Eighth streets for the duration of the project (this section of Union Street is usually one way westbound).
Pedestrian access is being maintained with one of the two sidewalks remaining open during construction.
The project is scheduled to be complete in December 2016. All schedules are subject to change.
IEW Construction Group, Inc. of Trenton, NJ is the general contractor on the $18,541,535.84 project.
The Eighth Street/Albertus L. Meyers Bridge was originally constructed in 1913 and rehabilitated in 1973. It is a 17-span, concrete open spandrel arch bridge with nine main spans and eight reinforced concrete T-beam approach spans. It is 1,959 feet long and 46 feet wide and has an average daily traffic volume of 16,950 vehicles.
